To take a hand

Many moments in my life: I have taken a hand in anothers tasks. From my self, I have stretched out my hands to anothers self. Then pulled upon myself, what is theirs.

How, exceedingly rude.

Manus, is Latin for "hand".

To have a manicure, is to take care of yourself.
To manipulate, is to take a hand in another’s story.

I now attempt to keep my hands mostly to myself. I slip up often. Then I take care of myself again.

From my self, I then reach out a hand of support to another self.
