Helping others in their struggle will ultimately help you in yours. There is an innate feeling of satisfaction when you set out to see past your own issues and help someone with theirs. The key is to be able to do so without an ulterior motive or expectation of something in return. Sometimes this expectation is subconscious, and we become givers based on the need of something that may have been lacking in our own lives. We have to recognize the existence of this type of expectant giving, address it, and free ourselves to experience the real peace in helping others. Don’t let the lack of reciprocation scar you and keep you from reaching your complete transformation from struggle2strength!
