20 Lessons From 2020
Helping, giving yourself to others is truly the most important activity in one's life.
Sure, you've got to have some resources built up to be able to give. You can't overlook your own sanity, capacities, growth, and pleasures.
I've helped quite a lot this year. It's nothing compared to doctors and paramedics who volunteered tons of extra time to fight the pandemic. But, in my little personal scale, I've done a lot more than in previous years.
It was tiring, challenging. Unfulfilling, at times. (When you're working 12 hours a day for free it simply may be at times).
But the fact that even just a single person benefited from the help is all I need to feel fulfilled.
That's how I want to live my life.
Lesson five: help whenever help is needed.
