The question is simple as that. Still, it’s not that simple.
I’ve been thinking about this for a while. How can we help others? How can you help this world with your finite strength? Well, there are further breakdowns of this question/thought. Like what kind of people do you want to help: poor, if poor then homeless by shelter, or starving by food, or provide emotional support, or solve financial crisis e.t.c. But that just makes it welfare work.
Well, welfare is also helping. But I think offering something to the world is not any different as helping, yet not exactly the same. It must have something. Something more effort taking, and something that has more to present. What if there’s something more than just services or products for those in need. Something like giving away yourself, instead of services or Products, to this world. I know, at this point it becomes another philosophical paradox.
But, I’m wondering what if someone has a simpler answer to my question. What do you all think about this?
If not anything related to the stupid thought of mine, does anyone want to share their ideas about how we can help others in any way?January 9, 2020 at 11:45 am #332319
“how we can help others in any way?”-
-you are a teenager who started a few threads in the forums. Maybe you can help other teenagers who post threads here, by replying to them. After you reply to the original poster, wait and see if he/she answers you, and if you do get a reply, post again.
Reply with empathy, and not when you are angry. Reply with kindness, showing that you “heard” the person, and that you experienced something similar (if you did).
This way, you will make a misunderstood and lonely young person feel understood and less alone- a whole lot of help in doing achieving this, isn’t it?

This is a great idea. I would love to help someone to help be understood and feel less lonely in all this. Maybe this is the best place to get started from. I will start from once a week maybe?
Thank you for always replying, and for your time
Bless youJanuary 10, 2020 at 12:17 pm #332555
You are welcome. I think that once a week is fine, see how it feels for you. Don’t try to post perfect replies. Also, f you noticed, lots of members who start threads don’t come back to their threads, no matter how good the replies they received, so don’t take it personally if a member does not acknowledges your reply, best you can.
Try this and see how it goes. Post about it here anytime, and I’ll be glad to reply further to you.
