Here as in HP or here as in the world? Either way I think the world is pretty simple. You help other and the others some how help others. The others that can not really offer anything help teach by example. The horrible people teach the good people to be better. Everyone, no matter what, offers something.
Funny, I never really gave much thought to my own question. I was just being a Momo and asking a sarcastic question in humor. More of a 'math' type of thing. Half helps....the other half....whats the...other half...doing? My bad if it came out wrong.
Would I want to be friends with me? Not with this attitude problem I got! I'm funny though, so maybe. I'm also good, but cranky because NY is getting COLD! I'm also trying to remember how to do the Macarena. Don't ask.
I'd hate to know that I would borrow money from myself and never return it...only to ruin the only friend I had....and it its shoulder, shoulder; hip, hip; twirl your hips, and jump quarter turn and repeat..."Heeeey Macarena"! Lord shoot me now....
Anyone "concerned" with what someone else is doing says alot about alot. But since your question wasn't really serious, I'll leave it at that. O.k. ....so I see that you revised it a bit. I am definitely who I want to be to whoever I've considered (and know) is a friend. There is nothing like it and no experience on earth can replace it.
The world is full of people in need. Always has been always will be. As far as the "Others" you talk about, At times in our lives we are the others. We are all here just trying to make it through this hard, cruel world. Sometimes we ALL just need a helping hand. Be it a word of encouragement, Whatever it may be, We will all see it at times. And hopefully we can be there for others as well. We all bleed red my Friend.
benisan.....Look at it as a huge circle......as some are helping others......those others are taking heed of kindness and learning it's vital to pay it forward...to others......until a full rotation, round the circle is completed and a new group begins this sharing, to keep the circle moving......for as long as there are others to help.. A circle of kindness is unique....we may not know where it began, but we know we do not want it to end........
If you help others, are you interfering with the direction of their journey?When you help others, are you trying to fix them so the outcome is one you would choose? And, maybe not the one, they would choose?
What makes us more inclined to help some people and not others?What would cause you to help a homeless person or a stray animal but not a family member who has an issue that somehow just rubs you the wrong way?
