Life Lesson # 15. Help Others
It is important that we love ourselves and become the person we were created to be. It is equally important however to help others be the very best they can be – and the person they were created to be as well. No man or woman is an island. We survive and thrive by working together. We die when working apart. You could almost say that helping others keeps us alive.
Eight years ago I overcame and survived a terminal illness. That experience changed my beliefs. After that I never experienced life in the same way. If I have come to know anything, it’s that while much of life is unknowable, life has a purpose, can be lived each day with passion and that our ultimate reason for being in this life of miracles is to love and help one another. Nothing else matters.
