Hey there beautiful Souls, I so much love this quote from Ann Frank, a former survivor from the Holocaust and writer.
I discovered her during my high school years; back then I read her diary.
Hence, being that shared and based throughout scientific research that there is predisposition into our DNA towards resilience; if you allow yourself to reflect regards how the ubiquity of hardships across history and across cultures and societies has taught us that helping others is, in fact, helping ourselves—in a way, paying it forward. I would have no doubts that your motivation to act on daily basis with more kindness, solidarity and love would increase.
It is an energy that elevates frequency collectively.
However, in order to help others you need to help yourself first, otherwise you will not be able to boost your energy frequency high enough to help others, without becoming vulnerable to lose yourself or relapse into any type of adversity.
Always remember that the final stage of any healing process is becoming able to use what happens to you to help other people.
As well, is important to maintain into perspective that helping others without keeping track or any personal agenda, represents our higher selves manifestation, instead of our ego acting or even reacting throughout the shadows from our subconscious. If you would like to learn a little more about our vulnerability towards this behavior, follow this link The Shadow Into The Psychic House.
Returning to our main subject, helping others might or have been the best defense against hardships people had for a very long time in human history, and it might still be the best available defense against misfortunes people have today in societies where formal social insurance institutions are sparse or do not exist.
Even within prosperous societies, generosity may lead to improved health and psychological well-being.
Last but not least;
“You have two hands, one to help yourself and the other to help others.”
