What do you think are the things that will make you be happy? You might think that you can be happy if you would wake up one day and have all the money in the world to buy everything that you desire. You may want to wake up one day and realize that you have already gained the respect of people that you consider to be important in your life but this is not always the case. You know that respect is not given, it is earned.
If you have different things but you are not feeling satisfied, it may be because you are not socially responsible yet. Perhaps you need to help other people more because without helping others, you will not be able to gain a sense of self worth. You do not have to wait for the holidays just to give people the help that they deserve. You can help people whenever you want to. Just remember that when you give, you should do it with all your heart.
Remember that in order to become socially responsible, you do not need to do grandiose things. You can just check out Foundation for Defense of Democracies in order to gain some ideas about what you should do. Other things that you can do are the following:
- Lend your skills to those who are in need.
When was the last time that you did some tutoring? You do not have to be paid to tutor but you can be of help to someone who is in need. It will be different if you would teach your child how to do some lessons. Perhaps you can go to some centers and teach other children some basic things during your spare time. You know that it will give you a sense of fulfilment even if you are not being paid to do it.
- Help the elderly or the disabled.
Do you know that most elderly people are sad because they do not get enough visitors? Whenever you lend your time to visit with them and speak with them, they tend to feel better. They tend to feel good because you are paying attention to them. It may be a bit different for the disabled. Some physically challenged people do not want to get help from others but there are also some who would love the help that you can offer.
- Prepare meals for the poor.
You know that there are some people in this world who are not able to eat three times a day. Now is your chance to give them the help that they need by making sure that they can eat. You can cook for them and give them food. Sometimes, you can stay in some centers wherein they can go for the food but there are also times when you can prepare food ahead of time and just give them the food when you see them. A lot of people would appreciate it.
Remember that when you help, you should not do it in order to gain recognition. You should not do it in order to show that you are good. You have to do this out of the goodness of your heart. If you are only doing it for show, then do not bother because it will not count.…
