I think that everyone can relate to sometimes getting so caught up in the needs of others that we allow ourselves to fall to the wayside. Her work is so very important for young women and clearly she is making a difference. I love her message that the quality of our work or activism can only be as good as the extent to which we take care of ourselves. I think these are inspiring words that we can all live by.

Rachel's story is extremely inspiring. Her dedication to being a voice for these girls shows how passionate she truly is about her work. It is wonderful that she has been able to find a balance in her life between work and pleasure. It is very important to maintain this balance in order to succeed in all that you do.

I think Rachel's message is very important, it's easy to lose yourself when fighting for something you so strongly believe in. However, you can't truly help others without also taking care of yourself. If you lose yourself you will never be able to fully give to your cause, it's important to maintain a balance.

I believe that anybody can give something to help others and this does not always mean money....you can give your time or service. We can always give according to our abilities...so there is no excuse for not helping others.

I think we should only give within our convictions and morals. If it's against our convictions and beliefs then giving will be detrimental to us.

Once I received a call offering me a decent sum to turn for a pianist for a chamber music concert. I was pleased to finally get paid for something I'd been doing pro bono for years. I got there early and met with the pianist. He seemed high-strung but some people are before a concert. I clarified repeat issues with him and he assured me he was a clear nodder.The concert began and I soon saw why he was so high-strung; his mediocre technique and limited musicality made him a bad choice to play the well-known Beethoven and Brahms trios he was tackling (almost literally, football player style). We got towards the end of the first page and he did not nod. I figured, Maybe he likes memorize the beginning of the next page and have late turns. Nope as we reached the last two beats he abruptly turned his heard toward me and, in a low, gruff voice barked, Turn! This disagreeable ritual was repeated for most of the performance. I thought it might have been less disruptive for him and the audience to nod as he said. No such luck. I made it through and didn't mess it up, but he really unnerved me and I dare say I was very deserving of my pay that evening.

The coommn factor with the vast majority of internal trafficking is that the predators are mainly males, and can come from all backgrounds and cultures. In England, it is mainly done by white males, but also males who are from most ethic groups. It is about having power and control over vulnerable girls and young women and mainly about making easy money. There is little or no real justice for this violence only a very few men are arrested, and of those who are sentenced it is usually a too low sentence. Most of these predators remain invisible, and keep their power. It is usually the men low on the pecking order of the sex trade that are arrested for the men with the real power keep their hands clean by calling themselves businessmen.

I think what we have to give up in order to help others is the comfort we get in not having to make decisions. To help others, we have to decide what to do and when to do it because other people are depending on us. There is comfort in just being lazy and never making a clear decision about what to do, and this is what we have to give up in order to help others. But you can't give up everything, because you do need to keep yourself healthy, strong and content.

"you will only be as good of an activist to the extent that you take care of yourself" ^this saying changed my view on life and i love it! i'm from toronto, canada and i totally support this organisation, and what you're doing, rachel! love it! keep strong! :)

I'm wondering if anyone on this thread feels that they give more to others than they receive and what is it you do for yourself when you're not giving to others?

Thank you Rachel for taking on an important calling as well as an important topic. I can't tell you how many people I've witnessed struggling to find a balance between helping others and self-preservation. Often, the helper burns out or becomes the one who needs help. Thanks for presenting this!

Thank you for introducing me to the category of "self-discovery". I think I often think of the resourcing I do outside of ministry as self-work, and "discovery" helps me put it in a new light.

Well, said, Rachel! I know physical exertion/exercise/hard work can nurture the soul, but boxing??? Just goes to show all new experiences, approached with an open mind, nourish us. I'm glad your dad shared this with me. Mary
