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.... 501 People

    I went to school for computer technology,

    and became good friends with my professor. He is great guy but, he lets the little things get him down. He is a little scatter brained from time to time but, highly intelligent. He hails from a rough life in the ghetto. He's been shot twice and stabbed but still keeps trucking...

    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...

    Encouragement

    I think someone once said that encouragement is one thing every so desperately needs yet so many have to do without!  We all need some encouragement from time to time!  There are a lot of hurting people in the world and many find their way to sites like EP.  If I can give a...

    "Saint"

    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...

    Yes

    It comes natural to want to lift others up when they are down. Sometimes, I guess I don't have the wisdom for it. But if I think fast enough to notice someone is feeling low, I try to be uplifting in some subtle way.

    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.

    "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
