    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.

    Um, this is one of those "who's on first" kinds of questions, isn't it? My guess would be that they're waiting for their turn to help?

      'sup Georgiegirl, I'm kind realizing how I worded the question...it was that or me ask: "Are you the kind of friend that you would want to be friends with"?
      How everything with you?

      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....

      Girlfriend, if there is one thing my mama taught me, was to pay attention to the little things a girl wants, and how to dance....everything!

      Oh, I don't dance. When I do, I look like a duck-donkey with eleven feet! The really funny part is that you probably think I'm exaggerating. I'm not. smile

      ....its the "duck-donkey" combo that I am trying my hardest to visualize, and not nine, nor twelve, but eleven feet....Hmmmmmm?

      Come on, now. Like a platypus, only bigger and less graceful (and more annoying). And that one foot is always off tempo!

      I kind of figured it would be that, what I remember about horrible dancing, was our junior high social dances. Everyone looked like penguins making small circles.

    Sometimes we are the ones needing help and sometimes we are the ones giving help...we all get to be one or the other!

    It is give and take for all of us. We balance each other's strengths and weaknesses.

      Its amazing, I trying to remember what state of jind I was in when I wrote this question to be answered. Everyone seems to interpret it in so many fashions.

    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.

      Ms. Vondagirl, I'm sure you are a delight to have as afriend. Your profile pics lets me know you do not tolerate bullsh*t, and I like that in an individual.

    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........

    Yes. We are here to help each other. The "others" are here for us to watch and learn what not to do.
