    I will go out of my way to help those

    who strike a positive friendly vibe. Knowing that any act if kindness or positive atmosphere could make their day better. However those who are belligerent and rude don't get so lucky.

    A Little Helping Hand

    I feel like I came into this world to help others. I have the need of giving. I can't help seeing injustice and imbalance. In this world some have too much luxuries and material stuff while others can't even survive a day due to starvation. Whenever I see suffering, I feel like I...

    Success has many fathers,

    but failure is an orphan. [ when something succeeds, many people take credit for it; but when something fails, they do the opposite.]

    One time I was driving home,

    I saw a woman standing in the cold waiting for a bus. I offered a ride, but she refused. :/ Do strangers feel threatened by other strangers offering help?

    when I grew up I when through a lot of Sh*t

    that I wish I got help with. I always end up helping others though, even if I don't like them. I also don't like asking for help much anymore, rather solve things on my own. Guess I make myself strong so that I can help others along too.

    Happiness

    I feel good about myself when I help someone in need. If I see someone in need of something and I don't help it rest on my conscience for a really long time. I, in return get happiness and that is all I could ask for.

    I Know The "pay It Forawrd" Concept, Never Saw The Movie...

    I help others because it fulfills me to be able to impart knowledge - or in the rare case understanding - through my words but more importantly through actions. Seeming like the 'least likely person to help' and coming through for someone in a time of need reminds me that if I...

    possible and within ny capacities. But seldom does it come true, though not never. This leaves a regret in my mind that I have not done enough, as I could do more to help others. Sometimes I think of too much philosophy and I believe that while everyone has an equal right over...

    but I am just too shy to speak out and ask if they need help. Sometimes I see people look puzzled I always looking at them feel like to approach them and help them, but I am just not brave enough to do so. I remember it once in a very long while ago in a supermarket I saw a...
