Some people say that there’s no such thing as a selfless act. Sometimes people believe that anything we do to help another person, we get something in return. Sad but true! However, not all people do this just for their selfish intentions but few do this to feel good about themselves and show that they care.
Not all people are kind-hearted. Some people show concern just for the sake of doing it. I don’t like that. They show they care because they want to be recognized. I’m used to handling a burden of responsibility. I take care of almost everybody without expecting any return. I give because I want to not because I want to have something back.
When you do a favor and expect to be returned, then you are doing business not kindness. Simple things become complicated when you hope too much. The truth is I like to help people. It makes me feel good to give. I don’t do it in order to get anything back. I just believe that the more you give, the more you receive. It’s human nature to want to repay. But honestly, it’s because giving is a gift.
If you do, it will eventually come back to you, even when that’s not your intention. And when it doesn’t, you get the satisfaction of helping someone, which is my experience. Although modesty aside, we all have bills to pay and many of us have mouths to feed especially me who is a single mom; but when it comes to helping, I am very happy just by doing that. I do not feel stingy with it, the world has a way of rewarding such generosity.
You can’t help everyone. But helping someone because you care and don’t concern yourself over the results, make you satisfied. People are usually good by nature. They want to help other people whenever they can. Some will even go beyond their means to help someone in need if they’ve been deeply touched by the circumstances of the needy one.
When you do good, you need to be sincere. You have to be honest with yourself. Never focus on whatsoever about you at all. You put that needy person before you. Selfishness destroys the greatness of an action. You may not want to get money or other tangible benefits from your good deed but wishing for recognition of what you’ve done is still expecting something in return; which is not right.
Reality is, it’s not about how big the favor was, it can be the smallest thing ever. You do things because you want to do them not because of any pressure or of any sort. Every time you do something, no matter how small or unimportant it may seem, and never think what you’re going to get in return, good deeds magnify and comes back to you when you least expect them.
