Try to help others

Helping others is not only a good for them and a good thing to do, it also makes us happier and healthier too.

Giving is not just money, so you do not need to be rich. Giving others can be as simple as a single word, smile or a thoughtful gesture.

Helping others gives us a sense of purpose and satisfaction.

People help each other because it gives them a feeling of pleasure. Outside of operant conditioning, helping others can contribute to feelings of self esteem by making a person feel valued and important, because their positive impact on the world. It gives their existence additional meaning and value.

No one has ever become poor by giving. Helping others may just be the secret to living a life that is not just only happier but also healthier, wealthier, more positive and meaningful.

If you make others happy, you will be happy. If you make others unhappy you will be miserable.

Our prime purpose in this life is to help others and if you cannot help them, at least do not hurt them.

Today we are everywhere in a severe competition and in a power struggle. People and our leaders are very selfish. We do not think about the country. We have forgotten basic purpose of life.

We must try to help others and make this world a peaceful and better place.
