“There are two ways of exerting one’s strength: One is pushing down; the other is pulling up.” —Booker T. Washington

There is an innate need in every person to feel good about themselves. Why is it that for some, feeling good comes at the expense of putting someone else down. The higher road that leads to longer lasting feelings of real self-worth come from doing good for others. Raising another up through kindness and compassion are the true source of internal strength and self-worth. How can we help ourselves…and others choose the higher road.
