When you decide to help someone, it might not go exactly as you anticipated.
They might not get what you wanted to help them achieve.
They might end up worse off.
They might not even use your help and go their own way.
They might take your help and use it with other people.
They might realize your help is not applicable.
They might feel as if they owe you and get stuck.
They might not be grateful.
They might not want help at all.
Yet, just by making the decision to help someone, you have put kindness out there. Kindness is contagious, and it is always worth it.
