|This is a revise. I have been inspired as of late by the notion of helping others to fill a void in my own life. "It is its own reward."|
Act Of Human Kindness Hey man, do you need a hand? It looks like you've got a lot on your plate. I can't relate, but I've had my share of rainy days. You could use an empathetic face. Hey ma'am, need a ride? Going down that road anyways. Streets aren't safe. It's getting late. Two miles isn't out of the way. Don't worry about offering me pay. I'll get my reimbursement by the expressions and the emotions. The satisfaction. People, so used to looking the other way. Wasn't until what I'm doing for you was done for me that I understood... The magnitude. It isn't about religion. It's not about good intentions or about self-indulgence. Just compassion. It has to be done. Someone has to do it. Not a hero by definition. Just a man who's trying to make a difference. A dent, or to scratch the surface. Give it a try. You won't be let down by the look in their eyes. The intense gratitude. Not just from them. It's an indescribable thing to witness. The act of human kindness. The most fulfilling thing you can do for yourself is to not understand circumstances or the subtle nuances. You don't need to bleed. You won't miss the animosity lifted off your shoulders. Just be kind. It is its own reward. Tweet
