There’s a young lady that goes to some of the same N.A. Meetings I go to and I’ve had some fun giggling at her because she is always shouting out words of encouragement while someone is speaking. Her favorite thing to to say is “help somebody”! So my little group has adopted her words as our mantra and whenever we part , instead of saying goodbye or see ya later we say ” help somebody” it may have started as our little joke but it has been a great way for me to get out of myself and not dwell on my problems. I’m at my best when I’m helping someone, wether its words of encouragement or just an ear to someone who needs to be heard. I had a young woman sit and tell me about the pageants she won and how all the guys went crazy when she walked in the room. After she finished telling me and walked away a complete stranger said to me ” you don’t believe her, do you?” And my answer was that I didnt really think about wether it were true or not but I know she needed to say it and it cost me absolutely nothing to listen. If you have a problem try helping someone else, you’ll feel better for it. You can be someone’s hero with a few minutes of your time, there’s healing in your hands if you’ll step away from your troubles for just a moment to help somebody !
