I Think You Should Lift Others Up When They Are Down

A group for those who believe in building others up when they need it or believe in helping others when they are down.... 743 People

    Husband. Photographer. Compassionate. Giver.

    I am here to help others and to be service to others. I would like to help people, compliment people, embrace people and share my life's journeys with others so it might help them. My wife and I just got married a month a go and we are both caring people.

    Sometimes in life there are many situations

    that bring us down, and all we need is someone to listen to us and gives us a word of encouragement, even a little prayer for that person can make a difference God has told everyone through his perfect word that we need to love one another and help one another and so I will obey...

    Do Unto Others That You Would Have Done To You

    I am a strong believer that if you want people to treat you kindly that you first have to put that out there. When people are down thats when they need to feel the love of God the most they need to see that in everyday people they need to see it so they can be encouraged and...

    "It is always important to know

    when something has reached its end. Closing circles, shutting doors, finishing chapters, it doesn't matter what we call it; what matters is to leave in the past those moments in life that are over." -Paulo Coelho

    I Love Helping Others

    I like to motivate others. I like when a underdog team wins against a strong team. Once in while everyone feels down. Even if I don't like the person then also I will help him/her to fight against the odds. Generally I like everyone, it's a part of them which I don;t like. It...

    One Of The Greatest Feelings

    Is when you can reach out to someone and help in their time of need. You can chase all the things in the world: relationships, money, fame, etc. But the feeling you get when you've helped a fellow human being trumps many feelings you can ever experience.

    Absolutely. I feel that we should be just

    as willing to lend a helping hand as we are to ask for one. In my view, we are all here to co-exist, live in harmony, love and befriend each other. What better way to do that than to uplift one in the time of need?
