when they do not do anything to help themselves, or worse still when they throw it in your face?

Yes, I certainly do. I think it is fine to do something for someone but, when you find that they are the type that does not do for themselves then you have to set up very definite boundaries and stay true to them. If not you will be very sorry. If they can't do anything to help themselves you are not helping them at all.

not always does helping people make them dependent on others........ begging has to often been not taken in good sense.......but a different perspective wud be that beggars also work hard for that money.......they stand in sun hole day...and market themselves to us........ its irony though.....

I think it is obviously not worth it. These people is only depending themselves on you. They will not learn in life, they will only depend on what you will give them. It is like someone I knew, she can’t apply to work because there are no job available for her, but the truth is there are many jobs on newspaper on the net, why not research for it. I already advice her to research, make an effort to find one, of course she do but after an hour she became tired and lose hope. Then after a day she texted me and will say she was tired of life, will ask me on how did I deal with my life and I explained. I included inspirational and motivational words so that she will realize something and she did. She asked what is my other online jobs and she would like to try it, and I gave it. Then after a day she texted me again saying, your online job is very hard, she can’t do it. And leaving you with a bad

Then after a week she texted me again, she will go out to find a job. I was very happy because she finally see the light, but at the end of the day we I came to ask what happen on job haunting, she answered me back she became tired because it was raining. I became frustrated believing on her. This kind of person don’t know really what they want in their life. It is useless to support them actually because they will not definitely use your help. They will just be there lying and waiting for the heaven to open and give them their blessing. I was never like these. I became tired of life but that drama just went through a day and I keep on achieving my dreams the other day. That is a clear procrastination. If you really want a better future that work it all now, not later. And I believe in the saying God helps those who help themselves.

i think help them only if it is someone you really care about, whether friend, family or someone on the street who has no one and really needs help. otherwise, let them worry about themselves.

An act of kindness is NEVER A BAD THING!!!! A bad response should never bother you unless you were expecting something in returnlike satisfaction. Know that lots of lessons in life are learned through adversity. If you try to take adversity away from those who need it to learn, there is always resistance. There is always more going on than we can see. That doesn't change the wonderful act of kindness from a truly wonderful personThat's you!! THANKS!!

Helping people is always good and its gives you some kind of self satisfaction. If the person being helped does not appreciate it then it is their problem and if not changed he is not going to find any help in future. This may impact your motivation to help, but you should come over it. You did you help and you got self satisfaction. And when you are helping someone out you should not be expecting anything in return.

Always. However, you have to be a good judge of character and know what people to help. Some people are just out there to leech off you and take advantage of your good nature.

Remember that to give a true gift is to let it go with no strings. No matter what happens to the gift you have done your part and given it with open heart.

Helping others is one of the finest things anyone can do. If it isn't appreciated by the person you help, that's their problem. You know you've done a good thing.
