I Like to Help Others

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,557 People

    There's always a feeling of fulfillment I get

    from helping others. We all end up struggling in one way or another. People need to stop pushing others away for being different. We learn so much from others.

    It's ironic to be unable to live

    for yourself, but still wake up everyday trying to help someone else find hope. I never was good at myself, but god damnit if I don't try to help other people. Feel free to message me about anything :) I am also a EP Volunteer and I will be glad to help you :)

    It may only take a moment,a smile,a cheery wave,a quick hello,"how are you today",to bring a little joy into peoples lives and best of all it costs you nothing! To call in on an elderly resident,offer if there is anything that they need.Perhaps stay for a chat and offer to do a...

    I do like to help others very much.  Maybe too much and it backfires, and I have just begun to wonder why. I had a boyfriend, who I helped all day long and he pretty much slapped me it the face for it.  He once told me that I don't give or help anyone without a price...

    Helped A Boy's Embarrassing Problem

    I'm good with my hands. I've always been great at making crafts or knitting, drawing, and whatnot. A few months ago, one of my close friends told me about this problem that was bugging her eleven year old son, Michael. Apparently he had these black things in his penis that he...

    Gratitude. Appreciation.

    Giving thanks. No matter what words you use, it all means the same thing. Happy. We’re supposed to be happy. Grateful for friends, family, happy to just be alive… whether we like it or not. Maybe gratitude… has nothing to do with joy. Maybe being grateful means...

    I love helping other people.

    Except nowadays I'm more cautious about who I help because people have taken advantage before. :( Usually when I help people I'm left in the dust and I get the short end of the stick. Sometimes it isn't always reciprocated or appreciated even though I know I shouldn't expect...

    Is That The Real Reason Why You Do It?

    If you wish to be a good counsellor you have to learn how to detach your emotions when or if the person refuses help. Remember that people who have issues (don't we all?), I mean people in general can be selfish, and their selfishness dictates that that they should neither care...

    ..or at least give it my best try. Even if it's something as small as just offering to lend an ear to someone hurting so they can talk about what is bothering them, let them let off some steam, and offer up some advice if I have it. Maybe it's silly of me when I can't even help...

    I think this is one of my best traits.

    I will separate a bit of my time to help everyone I can. The reason I do it, is I know how it feels to be helpless and lost in your mind between millions of choices, but none of them seems right to you. I know what it's like when you just want to be heard, but no one listens. Do...
