Helping someone who cannot pay you back

Choose kindness. You will have many opportunities in life to help those who can never repay you in some way, but compassion has a greater reward than any payback ever could...

I often marvel at how the holiday season seems to bring out a level of joy that never seems to be as intense or consistent in the earlier parts of the year?

Why does society seem to ramp up its receptive nature to perform these random acts at such a limited window when compared to the entire year as a whole?

Think about the last time you did something nice for someone. Did you expect, or receive, something in return? While there is nothing negative about being paid back or about receiving some other form of appreciation, there is a special way of compassion that is much better.

When you show compassion to someone who cannot give nor do anything for you in return, you are expressing a wonderful kind of joy. It is doing something for a fellow human being, without any expectations.

There are no strings attached to compassion, nor are there any conditions. This makes compassion the purest form of blessing that exists.

If you think about all of the people who are in your daily life, you will notice that you have many opportunities to show compassion every day.

There are also many people whom you do not see very often, and even strangers.

Each and every person in the world needs, deserves, and appreciates joy through compassion. You will not need to look very far to find plenty of them every day.

When you demonstrate that you are a compassionate person by giving, you will deepen your respect for yourself. Other people will soon learn to respect you as well.

The reason for this is that expressing love through selfless gestures shows that you are a person who cares about others.

In today's world, especially, there is a great need for giving and compassion. Many people feel empty and alone.

It is not difficult to find many opportunities to show friends, family members, and even strangers, that each one does count.

You may not have thought of it this way before. The truth is that whenever you show kind acts to a person, you are letting him know that he matters.

Even the smallest act of giving can truly make a difference in a person's life. When it is genuine and unconditional, you may even be helping him to believe in himself.

The smallest act of joy can be a gift that he will always remember. You have the ability to make such an impact in a person's life!
