“You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.”- James D. Miles
Some people only do things for others that can help them in the end. If you only do things for others to get something back you aren’t doing things for the right reasons. You want to help others that you don’t expect anything back from every time you do something for them. I am not saying help others that use you but don’t always expect something in return.
I know that I have had a friend in my past that would always expect me to help him with stuff but would never help me when I needed it. Sometimes people just ignore the fact that someone is use them or don’t even notice until a friend points it out.
You have to do what is right for you but don’t forget to help others. It doesn’t mean that you have to donate money or time. It could be holding a door open for someone or picking up papers that someone has dropped or remembering someone’s name when you pass them in the hall. Sometimes it’s just the little things that mean something to others.
My challenge to you is to help someone and not ask for anything in return. Just do it to do it. Maybe it’s just helping a neighbor or a stranger but just see what you can do to help. Life is what you make of it so what are you going to do today?
