I found myself wishing I could step out of myself and serve others more. It’s very hard for me (because of my anxiety and depression) to serve other people. Very hard. It’s a battle within my mind to believe that whatever service I provide will even make a difference. I wish I could understand why I feel this way. Still, it’s a very real emotion.On a good day, I have the confidence to step out of myself, stop listening to the lies in my head, and serve someone. Service gives me the opportunity to remember how blessed I am. I can put myself in someone else’s shoes and feel a little bit of what they are experiencing. This young man gets it! He totally understands what it means to “Be the Good.” So, let me tell you, there is 1 simple rule to being the good.
1 Simple Rule to Being the Good
How often do we see someone that needs someone stronger than they are to get their feet off the ground? This young man knew that there was no one else that was willing to be the other end of the teeter-totter for my son. And he acted! He saw a need and he helped! That’s it my friends. If you see a need, help! You don’t need to ask, “What can I do to help.” I think most of us already know what we can do. I get that sometimes, that question is truly warranted because we just don’t understand the complexities of some people’s situations. But, I think, if you see a need, just help. Don’t worry what they’re going to think. It doesn’t matter! You’re making the world a better place. Trust me, it’s a good thing.
Whoever you are, thank you! You made an impact on my life forever.
