I Help Myself By Helping Others

When you're down the best way to get back up can be helping another. 67 People

    I've been through so much

    that I feel as though my experiences can possibly help someone else. I'm all about helping other people and passing along my knowledge. I feel good knowing others can learn from me vice versa.

    Most days I feel lost.

    I am so happy with my life, but others are not. I take so much for-granted and I hate that about myself. I want to give all I have to making others live in a better place. I want to have faith in the world I live in. I want to know my life has meaning. I do not need money, I do...
