We all know how difficult life can be sometimes – you only have to turn the news on to see it – but it isn’t all bad – far from it in fact. There are so many beautiful things and people in this world; sometimes we just need to open our eyes to see it.

Take humans, for example, some are good, and some are bad, but all we ever seem to see in the media is the awful ones, and because of this we tend to shut ourselves down and build up a barrier so that no one can get to know us. We them become selfish, ignorant, and generally unpleasant. – Is that really the impression you want to give off? Or would you rather people say great things about you when you leave the room, because they’re all true?

Here are all the reasons why humans need to start helping one another more often.

Example

Helping someone sets the perfect example of how you expect your children, friends and family to act. It’s one thing just talking about random acts of kindness and why people should do it, but you take it to a whole other level when you’re actually being active and buying a homeless man a coat for the winter. Every child’s personality is somehow affected by the way that you raise them and the household that they live in. So if you always show them how important it is to give back – they will grow up and pass that same message down to their children, and so on.

Encouragement

When you help someone that’s worse off than you, it creates a strong sense of encouragement for that other person. It shows them that good things can and will happen, they just have to hang in there. Take Viatcheslav Kantor for example, he does so much charity work and teaches people to have faith and to never give up like he didn’t. Helping may just go far deeper than you could imagine, so although cooking someone a fancy dinner may not seem like a big deal to you – they may not have eaten a proper meal in the last week…

Positivity

Not only does helping others bring them a sense of hope and a feeling of love and togetherness, but it will also affect you in a positive way too. You may not be giving in order to feel good about yourself – but you will feel good about yourself. You’re essentially setting the tone for a better day. It will bring a smile to your face, as well as others, and you’ll feel even more inspired to carry on and pass it forward. The better we behave, the better the world will.

There’s that phrase that reads “be the change you want to see in the world” – so what are you waiting for? If you’re not happy with the world that we live in, in today’s society – make an effort to change it. More will follow. It just takes one.
