Inspirational Helping Others Quotes...

Ah, the joys of helping others! Almost as good as being helped, don't you think - almost, that is!...

Yes, I actually prefer to help others than to receive help, which is not necessarily a healthy combination - it's important to ask for help, when you need it, just as it's important to offer help too.

And I've been busy offering help, via my 'help yourself, help others too' SelfHelpCollective.com website, specifically on the relationship advice forum. Lots of people (men, women, girls, boys) with serious (and important to them) relationship questions, that I try and answer with humility and wisdom.

(But the relationship advice forum isn't about me answering questions, it's about people like you sharing your wisdom too!)

And every time I help someone solve their relationship problem, it helps me too. How? Well...

  1. I feel good about seeking to help someone solve a problem. (And, let's face it, other people's problems are easier to solve than ours aren't they!)

  2. I learn about my own relationships - the difficulties I face, the possible solutions that might work - when I investigate someone else's relationship problem
It really does work like that: helping others really does help yourself!

Which is pretty much one of the main reasons why I ended up creating the SelfHelpCollective.com website in the first place, I guess - to help others, and thus help myself (check out the video, below, for a further explanation of what I mean).

So that's me - how about you? How does your helping others, help you at the same time? Do leave comments at the bottom of this page and let us know - I'm sure it will be fascinating to see how much we all really care for each other!...

YOUR Feedback - What You Say!

This issue's contribution is from Jennifer - a Weekly Wonder subscriber I actually met last year for the first time in Holmfirth, UK. Jennifer is a bit of a fan of SelfHelpCollective (and the newsletters I send out) and her contribution is about this.

So, yes, this is a bit self-congratulatory (forgive me, eh!) but it does give you a small idea about the power of giving, and the difference it can make...

Acts 20 Verse 35 Part of this verse says " it is more Blessed to give than receive" and I like what you say Steve about the quote. We can be a nation of takers and expectant to receive, but the joy of giving is a good experience. We can and should give, of our time,of money, of a simple smile or hello, Giving sets us up for a good day
