Good morning! My name is Lauren and I'm a grateful recovering alcoholic/addict. I really like that quote. Jesse Jackson said that. We don't ever need to look down on anyone. We are all equals. Some may have more material things than others, but that means nothing. We cannot take anything with us when we die. It is all in in your heart and soul. "Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them." -Dalai Lama. So if you are going to be selfish and not help others, don't be mean or knock them down. They are or have been down, and are looking to get up, or looking for a hand to get up. Helping others is the most humbling thing. I have been trying to do the next right thing, and help someone else. I have had so many others help me through my struggles, it is about time I do the service and help someone else. We really shouldn't need a reason to help people, we just should. Helping others is a great way to help ourselves. Here is a brevity poem about altruism or selflessness.
You go out of your way
to help me,
yet it hurts you.
You are a gift
pay it forward...
So help someone today! Have a great one!
I'm Lauren. Get inside the head of a recovering alcoholic/ addict.
