It’s hard to think of how you will go through your days without having someone else helping you. You drop a pen, a person pick it up for you. You need to know the time, a man tells it to you. When you don’t understand an algebraic formula, you have friends all around you. When you’re lost, you can ask for a local to show the right way.
We are in a constant need of assistance and aids…
But let’s ponder the reasons of why we never give our seat to an elderly woman? Why must we wait for the others to start lending their hands first? Why are we being sceptical of giving aids to some people in need?
It happened to me all the time, and when I felt like I want to do it, I couldn’t do it because there were no more problems. The man picked his pen on his own. The old woman was given a seat by someone else.
Why didn’t I just help them in the first place? No need to ask for something in return. A simple smile and/or thank you are acceptable though.
