We grew up always hearing from our parents and seniors that we should be helpful. However , we rarely give a serious thought about it. A society will progress if and only if the people lives happily with good relationships helping each other. Look around us. We can see many of our friends looing for a helping hand. Some might be struggling for money while others requires our mental support and friendship. As students, its our duty to always offer a helping hand to the needy.
Let me narrate an incident which happened in my life. I was on my way back from school when it started turning dark. The wind whooshed around, drips of water poured down from the sky. I quickly ran towards shelter.
An old lady was struggling to get away from the rain. We sat on the benches, waiting for a bus to pull over. There was a long silence between us. Suddenly she spoke, " Thank you, young girl, for helping me." " Your welcome, ma'am," I replied cheerfully. We talked for a long time. Then the sky turned bright again. It stopped raining. I got up, said my goodbyes, and walked home.
When I reached home, I was surprised to find the old lady knocking at my door. Then she gave me a basket of freshly baked goods. She said that was a thank you gift. I thanked her gratefully. I told my mother about it when she came home.
It felt really great helping someone else. I realized that day that helping others is the most blissful feeling you can have in life. Helping others is not only good for them and a noble thing to do, but it also makes us happier and healthier too. Giving also connects us to others, creating stronger communities and helping to build a happier society for everyone. And it's not all about money - we can also give our time, ideas and energy. So make sure you always be helpful.
