I Have Been Helped By People Who Don't Even Know Me

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 233 People

    My scholarship applications had a glitch

    and didn't submit properly (so no $ for me)...my programs' biggest donor found out the day of all the presentations...I was working behind the scenes, and she came up to me and wrote me a check for more than any of the other scholarships! I almost cried.

    Everyone has, like those people

    who built my house or made my car or phone or clothes. I don't know them but they've helped me a great deal.

    And I Appreciate It.

    When a friend helps, you are grateful and happy that you have such a friend.When a stranger steps up and lends a had just to be kind, no reward expected, that is a different story. What a blessing to have such friendly strangers.

    There has been many times in my life

    when I have either felt lonely, felt down, and depressed that I've gotten encouragement by either writing another person, read stories of inspiration by other individuals I did not know nor had met, or agreed to same things because in actuality, they are similar or exactly like...

    Now I see fire Inside the mountain I see

    fire Burning the trees And I see fire Hollowing souls I see fire Blood in the breeze And I hope that you remember me Oh, should my people fall Then surely I'll do the same Confined in mountain halls We got too close to the flame And if the night is burning I will cover my eyes...

    Honestly, it feels awkward. I don't really know if I flirt I just be myself so if I "try" to flirt or be sexy...no. That never goes well.

    Its better to be alone than being with people who just going to bring me down. Instead of being there for me during difficult times, instead, they brought me so much misery.
