Sometimes we become experts in topics we never actually wished to know about.
This has happened recently, and I am learning the ins-and-outs of a system that I am embarrassed to admit I had never given much thought to before. My dilemma is that I feel like I want to do something with all this newfound information. But I don't want to feel like I am benefiting from it either. I feel like I have an obligation to share the information with others who might be in need of it, but I might not yet be in a position to help others yet when I am still in so much need of help myself. I keep going 'round and 'round with it and I can't seem to come to a decision.
I was going to ask somebody who is helping me deal with this about this situation at our meeting yesterday, but I chickened out. I'm so afraid of looking like someone who is trying to capitalize on a misfortune when that is not the case at all.
But isn't the oldest adage to write what you know? My intentions are good -- I want to write from a "first-hand help" standpoint...
Have you ever found yourself in this situation? What did you do about it?
