Doing what you love most involves the three P’s: passion, patience, and perseverance. If I could earn a living by helping out the unfortunate, I would use some of that money to buy necessities and donate them to organizations that shelter and feed these unfortunate individuals. It is my passion to help those who are in need, especially if they are stuck in situations that prevent them from moving forward with their lives. Patience is much needed when it comes to helping the unfortunate because it takes time for them to heal while helping them mend their broken pieces back together. Perseverance is necessary for aiding others because even if helping others may be difficult at times, where I feel as if I am not doing enough to help an individual, I continue to assist them anyway because I know that there is a chance that I may have made a big difference in their lives. It is heartbreaking to see individuals suffer throughout their lives because many of them do not deserve the hardships they have to endure. By continuously helping others, I will be able to influence people all over the world to lend a helping hand to those who cannot do it themselves. The world will become a much better place with individuals who become selfless for the sake of those who are not as fortunate. Everyone will be able to grow and learn together by sharing their helping experiences with one another.
