- Ralph Waldo Emerson
This is a powerful way to boost yourself out of depression, and it’s such a nice way too. The elderly are especially great to be necessary to. They have so many emotional and physical needs that are neglected, and, unlike children and busy adults, they will almost always appreciate what you do for them. Don’t forget the elders in your community: your efforts and energy will truly make a difference to them, which can only make you feel good about yourself.
