After Sunday, I will stop posting on this blog (dun dun duuuuuuun)! This is because I’m moving to euphoricyou.co.uk – so check it out.
Helping others is one of the most important things in life, and makes both the helper and the one being helped happier in both the short-term and long-term. But is there more to helping than just common human decency?
The short answer is yes, there is something more to helping than decency. There are many ways to help a person, whether its common everyday acts of kindness like letting a friend borrow a pen or more often helping them to teach them an important skill and encouraging them. Some people may ignore the help you offer them and some might plainly refuse it. So why bother helping them? Because I want you to spread the feeling of euphoria to those who need it, to help them live their lives to the fullest, not feeling down or upset but encouraged to be happy and spread this feeling to others.
So why help? Quite simply because there’s nothing that makes you happier than knowing that the person you’ve helped is left feeling like life is a little easier for them, and that they’ve got someone who they can turn to if they are troubled. This will make them happy too, in the long-term – and could be the start of a strong relationship. Just remember, there’s always someone out there who has a harder life than you. Understand that you are privileged (maybe not as privileged as some but definitely not the worst off). Try and make their life that little bit easier – bring a smile to their face. Make your own happiness contagious – that’s what life’s all about.
