Oh I love this topic. It took me years to figure out what I was suppose to do with my life of pain. I found it by accident even though I had been looking for a long time.
I discovered that I was pretty good at helping others who were starting a journey of pain. I also found that I had a knack to help others who found themselves stuck and unable to see beyond the pain. It is so rewarding and the fact is, helping others helps me deal with my own pain issues.
Finding my place in this world and finding that the pain is what gave me the ability to help others was eye-opening for me. How could living with pain be a good thing? That is the question I get most of the time when I share how volunteering has helped my journey of pain.
The most important thing that I can share is how volunteering allowed me to regain something that I had lost, my ability to feel accomplishment.
So many folks living with pain find themselves having to rethink who they are. It can be depressing, heartbreaking and downright miserable. Once a person living with pain can step outside of the pain, they can begin to see that they still have so much to offer the world.
Get out there and volunteer or find a way to volunteer online. I promise you that it is life changing in a very good way.
