I've been blessed by the kindness and generosity of others more than once, and it just feels good to pass it along whenever possible.
Yes, and I don't think the fact that doing something kind for any kind of "other" makes people feel good, lessens the value of the act.
Perhaps, I've helped a few old ladies with crossing the road, getting off a bus or with stairs of underpasses. I've learned a lot of things from elderly 80 year old women, they like to talk and their stories are interesting. My reward is being told I'm a good boy and it makes me feel good. Is that selfish?
I helped an extremely drunk girl that I didn't know who was alone at night at a train station home to her house years ago. I posted about that once on another site and I was astounded at how many people assumed that i must have taken advantage of her because i had the opportunity. I think there are still people that will help others just to help, but it's less common now.
Of course it does.
Yes, of course, there are still people out there who will help someone out of the kindness of their heart. I know people like this although this group is getting smaller and smaller.
That's my life. I don't expect anything in return.
Because I do it.I know of others who also do it.
I've been part of that experience - it felt good to be able to get someone over the hump.
I do it all the time and I cant logically justify my actions.
