Empower Each Other By Helping Each Other.
If one were to be in a bad situation, one will do whatever it takes to save oneself and come out ahead, is a false notion. The Truth is, if we were to be in a bad situation and we don’t have prior experience of overcoming such situations, most likely, we will start feeling that we are not in control, and thereafter we will feel helpless, hopeless and give up.
A dangerous thought, if a non-swimmer were to be thrown into deep water, he or she will learn how to swim. A better way, if a person does not know how to swim, teach him or her how to swim in the shallow with supervision and gradually encourage him or her to swim in deeper waters.
It is essential that we learn and practice to nurture each other. Alone we will perish and helping each other, we will prosper. Human species has thrived because our ancestors learnt and kept fine tuning the practice of helping each other.
