i know i can give my hand to others when somebody need me.i believe i will.but now i can not believe i can do my best to help others.this morning i was off my office to visit a friend.when i was waiting my friend,i saw a disable man walked across the road.suddenly he fell down,i wanted to give a hand to him at the first time,but i stopped for his terrible appearance.at the end a poloceman helped him.i blamed myself and i feel sad.and i am not sure mext time the same thing happened i will conquer my timidity.i am ambivalent very much. do you have the same exprerience?what should you do?

Hello peace001,Yes its my pleasure to help others who needs help.In my experience,I always bear in mind to help others in my own way of helping. It is a nice feeling when you help someone who needs.Even in a small thing, help what we can help for it is Gods Will.The person whom you helped will always remember your kindness.I remember one time when I'm on the way home,an old man shaked my hands and said Thank you maam,Iasked him why?He said,for giving me food when I'm hungry.I'm so touch with that.Its a great feeling when someone thanks at you unexpectedly. Thank you ,God Bless.

I think we may all feel this way at times. How will he act when you go to help him? How will others feel about you helping him? This shouldn't enter in to it but for alot of people it does. I figure if you want to help him do so and if you don't move away so someone else can. Call 9-1-1 or doing something like that is a help too.

No one can say what they would do unless they were faced with the same thing. I remember a few years ago and incident that happened. I had went to grocery store and on the way out of the parking lot I happened to see something laying on the pavement around 50 or more feet from were I was at. Sitting outside the store were some women at a picnic bench that was watching people as they went by. I stopped my car and was trying to see what was laying there, when I finally realized that it was a girl. I was in shock, I don't know if the women were wondering what I was looking out or finally seem her themselves. Before I could react they started running to her. Afterwords I thought about all the things that I should have done. I just think everyone has different ways of reacting to these types of things.

I believe doing something is always greater then doing nothing.Even if its just picking up the phone or telling someone else.

yeah, no one can say what they do unless they were in the same status.and different person make a different choice.and it will have kinds of outcomes.no one can know what will happen next minutes.the choice you make is right,and maybe it is a destiny.nobody can change it.

Don't be so sorry about that.There was eventually someone who helped him.The most important thing is the man got out of trouble but not what you did or not.A month ago,in a hospital,i saw an old man fell over.I stopped and wanted to give him some help when some others helped him.I don't feel regretful as he stood up soon by others' help without hurting himself.Well we should help others who are in trouble,but don't pay much attention to what you have done.

Hi yuhongchao. I do agree with you. We should not dwell too much if we could not help someone else. We should not feel sorry or blame ourselves. The important thing is that he, the old man received help.

Helping other is instinct to me. Specially old people and really young kids. I feel so bad if I know I should've helped them but I couldn't. I have a really soft heart and when I start pitying the person, I get all teary eyed. Still, I do my very best to extend some kind of help.

Hi peace001. You do not have to blame yourself for not helping the old man. You, like you have said stopped because of his appearance. It was just ok , you did nothing wrong. I could probably have done the same thing. It is good that the policeman was there to extend a helping hand.

i didn't have experience that you had.And if i were,maybe i would do like you.what was worse,I didn't think i'm ready to help others. So many times I want to help others but i found i can't reach my purpose.But i do my best to enrich myself and try to help others next time when my friends need me.

Yes, I didn't really have such an experience, but I usually do help people out, I rather enjoy doing that.. But like in a situation you were in.. I don't suppose I could have helped him even if I wanted to :( Like if you're with some friends they usually laughs when someone gets hurt or falls and usually tease them.. Then if you try and help the person that is really embarrasing as they did not expect you to do that and stuff.. Soo.. But we should help everyone whenever someone needs us and WE CAN help him/her :)

years ago I was like that but as years went on I became stronger, I even shocked myself a few months ago when in the early hours of the morning there was a girl screaming, at first I did nothing, I was scared but after awhile put my dressing gown on and went out, when I got there, there was a couple of male neighbours standin over this teenage girld sitting on the ground crying not speaking...so i went up and sat down with her, put my arm around her and she told me she was at a party, had a fight with her boyfriend they went for a drive and he threw her out of the car...then a car pulls up her boyfriend jumps out the car and grabbed her arm to pull her up..I shocked myself when I grabbed his arm and told him she did not have to go with him...none of my neighbours did a thing...finally someone rang the police....years ago I would never have dome that.
