    There was this woman

    Just the other week I gave my jacket

    and $100 to a homeless woman. Was kinda risky, I know, but it was below freezing and I felt horrible that she had to suffer outside in the cold.

    I will admit I do believe in Christ,

    His miracles, and what he was trying to each us. . . We need to love each other (and if for some reason you cannot, then you need to at least tolerate those you have to deal with. I know with someone people out there; it’s really hard. It’s one of the many reasons why I...

    ~Random acts of kindness are

    so rare these days. I believe that what you put out into the universe, you will get back tenfold. I believe people should start doing little things, to help someone. It doesn't even have to be much, you don't have to spend a dime. A smile doesn't cost a thing, and actually...

    kind people have helped me

    but it was the only way. We were bad for each other. We were like poison together. Our love was toxic. I really did love you and cared for you. I told you that one day you'll thank me for doing this, and I see you now happy as ever with her :) I'm glad she stuck around...

    I was told as a child

    that helping others is one of the best things ever. I think my mother's words rooted way too deep. I'm so helpful that I just cannot say no. I'll feel so bad that i said no. I think i took the idea of helping to a whole new level and became a people pleaser. If someone comes...
