The People That Help You

There are some people that come into our lives and they truly help us. Whether this is accomplished by being our friend, giving us a ride when we need one, helping us move, helping us paint our house, onto people who we never met but have inspired or guided us through their writings, their actions, their whatever… For all of us, there are some people that have come into our lives that have truly helped us in large or in small amounts.

As we pass through life, not all of our relationships last forever. Sometimes people move away, sometimes people become busy with their families or new friends, sometimes people just drift apart. That’s not a bad thing. That’s just the reality of life. But, if a person has helped us they always deserve a place in our hearts even if we never see them again.

I think we can all agree that we really appreciate the people who have helped us in our lives whether we personally know them or not. This is why I forever advocate telling people, “Thank you,” whenever you can. Whether it is for a small action like picking up something you dropped, a server carrying your meal to your table, onto the bigger things of which the list is endless. “Thank you,” is one of the best things you can say to a person. Reach out; let people know that they have helped you. Tell them, “Thank you.”

Some people, including myself, really set about on a course of consciously trying to help other people. This is not just for people I know. I try to do things that may help people I will never meet. Certainly, helping someone is not based solely in physical action. It can also be accomplished by saying nice things about a person, stopping or interrupting people from saying or doing negative things. Helping can come in all shapes and sizes but it has to be done. Helping requires you to do something.

Helping does not have to be done close to home. It does not only need to be provided to people you know. Look around the world, watch the news, read the newspaper, there are people who need help everywhere. If no one provides it for them they may be trapped into a negative life environment forever. But, if someone/if you cares enough to help, then their everything can become better.

There is a lot of negativity in this world. I imagine it has forever been like that in different shapes and forms. Some people believe helping is helping someone do something negative be this via word or physical actions. But, if anyone is hurt, that is never helping. That is only hurting. Everyone is a person. They all have feelings. They all have their families and their lived ones. No one deserves to be hurt. Thus, hurting is never helping.

So, what are you going to do today to help someone? What are you going to physically do, say, or write that helps someone? If you don’t do anything, nothing is done. Thus, no help was provided.

Help begins with you choosing to help. It begins with you doing the right thing.

Care; care about the all and the everyone—even the people you don’t know. Help someone today. Help someone right now. Help someone every chance you get and the world becomes such a better place.
