      Helpfulness

      Helpfulness is being of service.  It is doing useful things for people, such as things they cannot do for themselves, something they do not have time to do, or just little things that make life easier.  It is important to be helpful to ourselves too, by taking care of our bodies.  There are times when we need help from others.  That is a good time to ask for help.
