    i have this thing with me

    where i feel as if helping others is the only thing that leaves me feeling happy and proud. its the only thing that fills me with that long lasting warmth and helps me forget about my depression for that short while.

    Rejuvenation

    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...

    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.
