The best cure to loneliness, depression, isolation, and self pity is to serve. It is a little weird to say that you should serve so YOU can feel better about yourself. BUT seriously, give it a try.
You may already be serving. How is that going? Any fulfillment? I have served in the past and have felt so burdened, weighted down, and empty when I was done. I was serving for the wrong reasons. I was serving because I was supposed to, it was something to check off the list, or I just “should serve”.
Serve if you desire. Serve to get out of a rut. Just serve and see what happens around you, within you, but more importantly when we serve it is an opportunity to love.
