Maxime Lagacé, a Canadian writer, has aptly stated that “doing something for yourself gives motivation but doing something for others gives meaning.” This quote is about the significance of altruism and how it positively impacts our lives.
Doing something for others can bring a sense of purpose and fulfilment that goes beyond personal satisfaction.
In various parts of the world natural disasters have created chaos and isolation for many. Some people have lost everything important to them or which gives them a sense of purpose.
In supporting others, we connect with them in a meaningful way, creating a sense of community and belonging that might have been lost. Furthermore, when we make a positive impact on someone else’s life, we can feel a sense of pride and joy that is far greater than any personal achievement.
By supporting others, we can find meaning and purpose in our lives while also making a positive impact on the world. You may find it’s one of the most rewarding experiences you will ever have.
