Help Someone Else

When you can’t do anything about your own situation, you feel helpless and hopeless, you might still be able to help someone else in need of another kind.  I did, I wrote about that, and it did improve my mental health and sense of purpose.  From signing an online petition to monthly financial commitment, there are all kinds of ways to feel useful and part of a caring community.
