    Rejuvenation

    I've found that physically "giving back" to my community as a volunteer or an extra set of hands makes ME feel good.  I've moved around a lot, and participating in a community event is a great way to meet people, and to make new friends with similar interests.  Giving...

    I love helping people. Even when they don't realize they needed help. Sometimes I think I help others because I'm too afraid to start helping myself.
