Lean on me
When you're not strong
I'll be your friend
I'll help you carryyyyy on...
Ah, that's a karaoke song if ever there was one. We all need a hand every now and then, but most of us are useless at asking for help. This month's challenge is to indulge in little acts of quiet kindness for friends, family, or total strangers as many times as possible. If we're all so bad at asking for help, let's just offer it instead.
IT COUNTERS THE HATE
There are so many out there who stir up hate and fear for their own benefit. It only serves to isolate and divide people which is the dumbest course of action imaginable - we all need each other. It's as easy to be kind as it is to be a jerk, and it takes very little effort to make someone's day a whole lot brighter.
IT FEELS GOOD
Helping others also releases endorphins - it's nature's way of encouraging us not to be total pricks. We feel better about ourselves when we do something nice for someone else and there's no need to feel guilty about that little perk.
