I Really Do

I've had so many people take advantage of me for trying to be helpfull that I wonder if I'm just a chup . But I don't plan on changing my ways anytime soon . I naturally like being helpful . Maybe the appreciation of a few can out weighthe indifference of the many . I have found that there are very few truly greedy and selfish people in this world , we all contribute something . We all have a special gift that we should share with those in need whether great or small , young or old . One of my gifts is lifting heavy things , another is the capacity for work . I have counseled those in need of guidance ( very difficult sometimes ) and now I hope someone will appear to guide me in my time of darkness . A simple offer to help somebody can many times give them the strength needed to carry on in life . If you see a person who needs help with something , by all means , offer to help , but don't force your assistance on anyone , we should help , not userp. Always offer a helping hand and , you know , some day we'll all need one back .

Sometimes maybe we are just being used. However even in that moment we have a chance to show those who use us a different side of life. Down the road it may help them to see a better way of living is ofting to give of yourself istead of always taking. So even when I get used and know I'm being used I often try to find a way to use it to teach. Those out there who apprecuate my help and speak up make up for those who don't. It's nice to see someone else who does not let such people bring them down.

courtsey and manners seem to be going out of fashion nowadays, it's refreshing to read your post.
