Personal experiences, incidents and smiles
Hey, let me help you with this!
Do you offer to help even when not asked?
I do it all the time. It could be that I want to be the good guy who steps in when someone is in need. Or maybe I have the inner compulsion to please others? Who can say for sure! Even I cannot completely analyze my own reasons.
Doing small things like holding the door open for someone or picking up something they dropped is very common and most people would do it. Helping out with money when you see someone short is another way to help. But the most common way for me to help others is to offer them advice!
But not everyone wants unsolicited advice. I didn’t get this at first. But over the years, having negative reactions to my free advice has made me realize that I should NOT offer helpful advice without being asked for it.
So there’s something as being too helpful. Better wait till someone needs your help or advice and asks for it. Sometimes people can even be offended if you hold the door open for them!
Do you go out of your way to help others? Please share!
