Reach Out

“… show me today what I can do to help someone who is hurting…” 12 Step Prayer Book

Before I came to the program, I had no idea how lucky I am to have the opportunity to be of service in this way. When I help another who is suffering, here’s what happens to me:

(1) I temporarily forget about all my problems,

(2) self-centeredness slips away

(3) I feel appreciated by another human being,

(4) I feel like I have a greater purpose

(5) I gain self-esteem, and

(6) gratitude for my life increases.

If I actually help them, that’s great. Either way, when I reach out my hand to another, I am given gifts beyond my wildest dreams! ILML
