I have been told by my psychiatrist that I have poor self-esteem. I thought volunteering would be a good way to improve my self-esteem. Since I have a law degree I tried volunteering for a nonprofit writing reports on proposed regulations. I eventually quit because I was frustrated with the quality of reports I was writing. I did not feel it had as much impact on my life as I thought it would. It has now been over half a year since I quit and I have been a NEET since then. I have now done some research and have identified the Gutenberg Project as a potential opportunity. It would involve transcribing texts in the public domain. Has anyone used volunteering as a way to improve self-esteem and outlook on life and what were the results?
