Observe, Don't just see

Useful help


Are you helping just for the sake?


Are you genuinely lending a hand? If yes,

Are you ensuring whether the help is in a usable form and not a show off type?

Are you ensuring whether the help offered by you was useful to the recipients?

Otherwise why do we need need to help them, just to make them obliged?

Can’t do anything if the help is just a show off type. But there are cases when we oversee it. Even if we didn’t have any secret agenda behind the helping hands, we miss to shape it in a better form. Or rather we don’t ensure the quality of the help given. If we could think or imagine ourselves to be in that recipients’ position, the help will definitely be a useful one.

  1. Yes many times people help with a view to get it back with interest and even this is not done wholeheartedly.

  6. I can totally relate this. I’ve a classmate who help teachers just for the sake of helping. She helps us only if ensured that the teacher is looking at her. Anyway, it was a great post to read! 💫

  10. I think it become “help” — helping and returning help when one thinks of it as “help” in the first place. Why think that way, think of it as passing information, or co-living (if there is a word like that) if somebody asks me for something, and I have the information or the means, well I pass it on (or let’s pass it on) and forget about it… when it becomes obligatory, then it no longer become help. it become a power relation.

  13. Yes, very true. Some people help others to show off or just to justify their relation. They do not do it for a useful cause. If everyone helps others when needed without any other hidden motive, how great our world would have been.

    Have a beautiful day, Akhila. 🙂

  14. true. rather than focusing on what’s convenient and easy for you, focus on what’s the value added to the service you provide to the user , be it a product, a service , or a help like you said to the other person.

    • thanks Sup..you are absolutely right.. be it a product, a service or a help, we need to be aware of the value addition..if no value addition, why do we need to help someone, just for the sake..

  16. Seriously, few people help just for the sake of helping and then expect same from the person, they helped until they realize that ‘tit for tat’ is so true a law. Good post !
