I help with food, sometimes with money and I am always there as a friend to my friends. I want them to know that they can always lean on me, there are times I can help them so I just pray for them to found someone that can help.

I have always been there to help people when I could. I work alot now though and money is tight also. I am always busy working around here but I will help others whenever possible. I have also tried to help others earn more for themselves too so they could be better off also.

Hi momt2mit, when someone ask for help I always try my best to help him. How to help him? This mainly depends on the situation then. I couldn't help him with big amount of money for I'm not rich . I believe we might lose either friendship or money if a friend trying to borrow money from us, especially a great amount of money. I think the best way to help someone is to give him some cauncelling

lol I hit the post comment button accidentally. I haven't finished my story yet...Actually I want to retype the word counselling instead of cauncelling. I realize that my friend will keep on borrow money from me if he finds he could get money easily from me. Yeah, I have encountered such friend before in my real life and he hasn't paid back back the few k of money until now.

I always try to help people out. Matter of fact, sometimes I think I help people out too much. I was always raised to "do unto others...." I have been unemployed since April and I still try to help people out even though money has been very tight these days. Have a great day.

That is very kind of you gdesjardin. I know sometimes to give is better than to recieve. My dad always taught me this give until god quits giving to you. Which really means never, I feel I need to work on being more giving myself. Thanks for taking the time to respond to my discussion and happy mylotting as well.

I try to help others whenever I can, because I am a firm believer in Karma. I think that if you are helpful to people, then when you need it, God will bless you and you will not have to go without. besides, it feels good to know that you made someones day by giving them something that they needed.

I try to help in any way I can. It used to be monetarily with old friends, but let's just say they aren't my friends anymore. Now I try to help with advice, etc, stuff like that. We mow my mom's lawn to help, We've offered to help others for money. We sit with my fiance's granny... that's how we help, of course we ask for money, but we don't ask for much... hmm is helping the same if your getting money for helping?

I have a friend that is not very good with money as her husband likes to spend his wages on him and also her money on him as well.At times they get in a muddle with money as they run out as soon as they have got it.He seems to keep buying take aways and clothes for himself and there is hardly any shopping in the house for her and the children.The bill are not all being paid as they always seem to be behind with their bills.I advise my friend and she acts most of the time on my advise and her other friends advise.I have suggested of ways to make a bit of money to her but it seems that she would rather sit there and do nothing to get the money.She also seems to have given up on the big clean up of her garden which is a shame as she was doing so well with a bit of help from myself and a few of her friends.Her husband seems rather too laid back to help sort the garden out,but at the same time so is she.I do wish she would back her ideas up and face the reality of the clearing up wont do itself and the money wont come in unless you put the time in.Happy Mylotting.

I have helped people with all of the above and still help in all those areas whenever I can. When I was younger I had a hard time determining what was helping and what was enabling or having my kindness taken for weakness, but over the years and through many trials I have learned some valuable lessons that has helped me to make better judgments in who to help and how. I still love to help people because I hate to see anyone in need, but the reality is we all have need of something and I cannot meet everyone's need. When I am genuinely able to help I really feel good for them and for myself. I currently work at a place where people need very basic things......a shower, a change of clothing, a meal, a blanket, etc. I work very hard for these people reagrdless of whether I think they made their own problems or not. I do not judge them because they are already at the lowest point in their lives so my only mission is to help pick them up.
