He who gives when he is asked has waited too long. ~Sunshine Magazine
Psychology asserts that people will help based on two criteria: either they
1) Help to reduce their own discomfort.
2) Help out of care and concern for the other.
One could raise the question why he/she has to go behind friends helping them day in and day out as there is no such obligation to one another. One could always say “Why should I? “ and get off the situation, to think of it is quite a valid question which cannot be answered easily. What could one say in return? “Because we human beings are supposed to help others to book our places in heaven or have a better life in the next life of ours?” or “Because friends are supposed to help one another?”. Don’t they sound a bit stupid ???
Of course yes, there is no hard and fast rule that one has got to help another but on the other hand what is life without being of some assistance to the those around you? We just whither away like a flower on this earth of ours and it’s only the help the helping hand that we extended that lives on.
Help has to be something that comes from the bottom of our hearts expecting nothing in return. It at least should begin with family and friends. The “Why should I?”
syndrome would only win you glory for a spur of a moment where you feel there is no answer to your question but is not going to take you anywhere in life !!!!
