3 Reasons Why It Is Really Fun to Help Others

After reading a story about a father and son tandem, who went around helping the homeless in St. Louis, it got me thinking of why I love to help others. I made a list of three reasons I love it and I think you may too!

1) We are given so much and should want to give back

My mother always told me there are people out there who have it worse than you do. She is right and we should always remember that. As we are blessed in those ways, we should always give to those less fortunate as a way of remembering how well we have it and remaining thankful.

2) It doesn’t cost anything to make a difference

Folks like Brian Torchin agree that, while monetary gifts are popular, the giving of time may be as appreciated, if not more. Almost everyone has a few extra minutes and should give it.

3) It will make you a happier person
I am never happier than when I am helping. As someone who has suffered at times with anxiety and depression, there is nothing that will raise my mood more than making a difference in someone else’s life.
