A young guy helped a child to cross a road. A waiter return left wallet to a customer. A group of teenager helped a family lifting their car that got stuck in the ditch. A stranger shared his umbrella. A student gave her pen to the new student. A boy holding a door for his grandparents to pass. A simple gesture, a simple attention, those little things did make a difference.
A little good thing, a small ripple but who knows how much it means for the other side. Maybe a child that being helped to cross the road accidentally got left by his family. Maybe the customer put the only cash there. Maybe the family needs to visit their relatives. Or maybe a child that being helped to cross the road just spend his idle time. Maybe the customer didn’t really bother about the wallet. Maybe the family intentionally stuck their car so they can claim the insurance. Knowing that chances, would you still help other people?
Well, I would still help another people. Why? Ask yourself why not. Caring is not the same as sharing a cake. The more you share, the lesser you get. It does not work that way. Caring is like sharing a candle flame, you do not lose what you have in the first place. But what about the money that I’m going to spend for myself? Well, if you do really need it like another person does then spend it on yourself first. It’s not wise to spend all your belongings on the other. Love others as you love yourself. Being a yes-man doesn’t mean you’re a good person, being a yes-man means you do not give time for yourself. What if other is using or tricking me? It’s their mistake actually, not yours. Just be a lil bit wiser and notes that helping is not the same as spoiling. Don’t be a yes-man nor a yes-woman. If you do not want a beggar to buy a beer with your money then give him a coke instead of cash. Caring doesn’t mean you need to fulfil their wish, some people do not even know what they need.
Being a good person does not guarantee that you will have a smoother life too but being a good person have their own advantage, you wouldn’t know how many help that will come around the corner when you need it. Are you agree or disagree? Let me know in the comment section.
