I want to know if anyone here is open to help people. This means anyone who approach you and ask for some help, will you give them the help they need? Or are you the type of person who think first before giving any help?

Depending on the situation. Last week, our neighbor ask for my wife assistance financially and she consulted it to me. I knew the people and she has a good background, however so happen that she need a little money last week, so it is fine for me. But if people approach me asking for a help financially, and I knew he is doing just a gambling or a "drunking master" on the street, then sorry.

I am like you my friend. I don't have time to help those gambling lords and drunking masters as well.

I would die to help my friends, at any ways I can. But I can't help a completely stranger. I don't know why, something stops me. Maybe after everything we see in the movies and news, about kidnappers, or unexplained murders, I am very carefull, but I can't help it. :/

I think its in everyone here. Feeling hesitant before giving help to strangers.

Helping people isn't like it used to be in the old days. A lot of people want help but aren't willing to help themselves. I always think before I help. Some people expect others to just help and don't care to help themselves. I have no problem helping people but I don't want it to be a regular habit. I want to help them get on their feet so they can help themselves and maybe in the future help someone else.

That is one thing I look first before I give any help. I want to see if the person who seek help is willing to help himslef too cause I don't want to waste my time helping someone who can't help himself. Thanks for the post!

i am both.. dependent of whom the person is asking for help. if he is a friend, that is close to me, then without a doubt, i would certainly help him out.. but if he or she is new to me.. i mean, i have to know first who i am actually helping to.. building a trust first.. thinking it over.. knowing the details and knowing what is going on.. that is how i help people..

I think we are just the same. Its really need to think first before giving any help to anyone.

When asked "Could you help me please" I always answer yes before asking what I would be supposed to do and since it's really easy stuff most of the time. However there are times when I wouldn't help or at least had to ponder it before taking action. A: Help isn't always help. For example copying my homework won't help you. I went to the store to get something one night and there was this old man who clearly needed help carrying his purchases. He said he lived right next door. I thought about it for a couple of seconds and helped him since he seemed very fragile and like I could take him if I had to - so I helped him. In general I try to help as much as I can.

That's such a nice way of helping and you are right help is not that hard most of the time it may come in a small way. Thanks for sharing.

If one of my friend asks help from i would help them but that depends on what kind of help they wanted. Financially i can't help them but emotionally they can cry on my shoulder, share their problems and i advice them. When i was in college, if my friends asked helped for answers the test i secretly give them an answer as what we said, share your blessings.happy myloting!

That's a nice way to help friends. Not in terms of money but in other ways.

Of course, when someone ask my help I will help them as fast as I can and if I can really help them. But if they ask for financial help, well sad to say I can't help them cause even I need help to earn money but if other things why not as long as I can do it and I can hurt anybody.. I will only think twice to help that person if I know that there is somebody who will get hurt, I don't want to have a conflict to anybody.. I just want to help for the best and not to worst.. I do always help my friends if they need me and I'm not asking or waiting for return.. Well, even sometimes when I'm the one who asked for their help they don't even help me but its ok cause I know that when you help others I must not expect in return.. But sometimes I feel sad and hurt... I guess that's life, that's people and no one can change it..

I am a kind of person that easily helps other people provided that the help they need i can give on them.Sometimes i think it first but if my emotions will come first,i'm not thinking it anymore,and my concern is i give them my hands if they need me

It really depends, if that person is a complete stranger, I think about it first. Life is hard now and sadly there are a lot of people who take advantage of others kindness. However if it is a friend I give as much help as I can.

It's a great feeling everytime i help.I do whenever i can.I would feel sorry if i can't help but i always try to lend my helping hand when i can.If its necessary to think it first then i would but if the help is needed right away and i could why wait for more time if i can do it.
