Kim commented on It's Never Too Late To Volunteer

I love this idea and thread. There is a substantial amount of research linking feeling like a burden to negative health outcomes ranging from reduced meaning in life, to depression, to suicide. Although not yet examined empirically, my hypothesis would be that volunteering is a powerful antidote to feeling like a burden, as it allows people at any age to contribute and give back.
