Help Others

Saturday, January 31, 2009

There are a lot of things you can do to help in your community, whether it's with your mom's chores, or if a friend is upset. Here are some little things you can do to reach out to other people.
Try to offer first. When people need your help, they'll most likely ask you first, but if you have the chance, try to offer to help before they ask you. This'll show that you were willing to help from the start. For example, if you see a friend struggling to carry groceries, offer to help. Or if you see them getting bullied, help stand up. Or if you see them getting pushed down or beaten, ask "Are you all right?" and help them up. Then try to cheer them up. Believe me, helping people will always make you feel better because it's the right thing to do.
Put yourself in someone else's shoes. Being compassionate can give you a strong reason to help someone else. It can also show people that you really do care about someone.
Volunteer or donate. Being in charitable organizations is a great way to help the less fortunate, like donating food or money to the poor.
Listen. You obviously can't know what you need to do if you're not even paying attention. Plus, people aren't going to rely on you very much if you act like you don't even care what they're saying.
Think about what might happen if you don't. More people will feel more miserable if you just leave them when they need you, and you don't want to see people unhappy, do you? Don't stress yourself too much, but it's always nice to lend a hand.
Observe. Find out what that certain person might like. For example: He/She is always folding up paper. You can buy a origami set and teach him/her your tricks. Or he/she seems bored a lot. Try spending time with them to play a board game or play cards.

Helping out is a great way to make new friends, too. Once people know they can trust you, they're more likely to help you out in return.
Even if you are in a bad mood, you will probably feel better yourself after helping others.
Helping can be just about anything so long that it is done in sincerity. Even a simple smile, "hello," or compliment could lift someone's spirit!
Hospitals and youth groups have many volunteering opportunities.
Spend time to become a close friend to that person, so he/she can look foward to your visits.
Even though at first it might be kind of awkward, keep trying!

Don't always expect rewards or praise in return. What really matters is that you were able to make someone happy. Besides, rewards usually come when you least expect it.
Keep in mind that they may not always need help. If someone says something like, "No thanks." or "I can handle it.", then just insisting may annoy them. You won't always be able to tell if they really do need your help, but it's best to back off if others are angry or in a hurry. However, if they refuse your help, you should ask one more time, and if they still refuse, then walk away.
