Why is it people feel the need to help others and I am talking in general.
Is it to make them selves feel better, a divine intervention , to right some wrongs. I mean we all could be selfish and need the wants (not want the needs - big difference) and materialistic without giving, so whats your thoughts?

why do you help people?
I have many reasons and in them is all of the above but a question mark over divine intervention . I find it more self rewarding and beneficial than anything else , but you know my help may be wrong so…… I want to see what others perception of help and what they get from it is.
So you help others to learn about what your help can do for them. . .so essentially you help others to learn about yourself?
i think i may have misunderstood…I kind of got mixed up.
No i don’t need to learn about myself in that sense (it is not a science project and they are my guinea pig)
don’t put that there devilish…noo please
don’t put that there devilish…noo please
lol now this wont hurt a bit :P
Aghh! My huge innocent eyes!
Most people do not know why hey have an urge to help and relieve some one else’s burden it is a gift in some sense and a burden in others. For me aslong as I achieve a wider knowledge and understanding and can pass it on to somebody else to help them in there times of need I am happy - if that makes sense
Like with there pain and anguish or need is more knowledge and understanding for me - we learn together and help each other
Yeah it’s wierd like that…I came to this site cos I was sad about something but it felt good meeting people and helping them out and magically I forgot what it was I was so sad about. Maybe its that we like to be useful to others…like hardwired in our social programming that we have to help others cos if we didn’t we’d all be loners just taking care of ourselves like tigers those really big ants in the Amazon or sloths or rhinos or kangaroo rats or desert cats or sidewinder snakes or foxes or arctic hares.
The “help” is Humanitarian quality born with every human being carrying feelings of love and care! It’s about the involuntary inward compassion of human beings! If i help you I learn and you learn! Together we make the life easy! :)
I have a saying - “There are only two unselfish things that you can give another… Love and a listening ear.” Which I do believe, and so yes, the help that I try to give is a selfish desire. :-)
Then said a rich man, “Speak to us of Giving.”
And he answered:
You give but little when you give of your possessions.
It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.
For what are your possessions but things you keep and guard for fear you may need them tomorrow?
And tomorrow, what shall tomorrow bring to the overprudent dog burying bones in the trackless sand as he follows the pilgrims to the holy city?
And what is fear of need but need itself?
Is not dread of thirst when your well is full, thirst that is unquenchable?
There are those who give little of the much which they have - and they give it for recognition and their hidden desire makes their gifts unwholesome.
And there are those who have little and give it all.
These are the believers in life and the bounty of life, and their coffer is never empty.
There are those who give with joy, and that joy is their reward.
And there are those who give with pain, and that pain is their baptism.
And there are those who give and know not pain in giving, nor do they seek joy, nor give with mindfulness of virtue;
They give as in yonder valley the myrtle breathes its fragrance into space.
Though the hands of such as these God speaks, and from behind their eyes He smiles upon the earth.
It is well to give when asked, but it is better to give unasked, through understanding;
And to the open-handed the search for one who shall receive is joy greater than giving
And is there aught you would withhold?
All you have shall some day be given;
Therefore give now, that the season of giving may be yours and not your inheritors’.
You often say, “I would give, but only to the deserving.”
The trees in your orchard say not so, nor the flocks in your pasture.
They give that they may live, for to withhold is to perish.
Surely he who is worthy to receive his days and his nights is worthy of all else from you.
And he who has deserved to drink from the ocean of life deserves to fill his cup from your little stream.
And what desert greater shall there be than that which lies in the courage and the confidence, nay the charity, of receiving?
And who are you that men should rend their bosom and unveil their pride, that you may see their worth naked and their pride unabashed?
See first that you yourself deserve to be a giver, and an instrument of giving.
For in truth it is life that gives unto life - while you, who deem yourself a giver, are but a witness.
And you receivers - and you are all receivers - assume no weight of gratitude, lest you lay a yoke upon yourself and upon him who gives.
Rather rise together with the giver on his gifts as on wings;
For to be over mindful of your debt, is to doubt his generosity who has the free-hearted earth for mother, and God for father.
For me: I enjoy helping people & I can’t stand the suffering because i have suffered before & I know how is it to be suffering . When you help someone you feel effective , valuable & I like that .
maybe we just like helping ppl
there’s always an evolutionary explanation: helping ensures the continuation of our species, we are hard-wired to get pleasure from helping others because giving and receiving help made our pre-historic ancestors live long enough to reproduce.
God said “: “Let us make man in our image, according to our likeness,” Gen 2:26. So we are like God, not animals. We can and will love if we want too. He gave us free will. So what do we do with it, we Love, we help each other. 1 JOHN 3:17 ‘But whoever has this world’s means for supporting life and beholds his brother having need and yet shuts the door of his tender compassions upon him, in what way does the love of God remain in him? 18 Little children, let us love, neither in word nor with the tongue, but in deed and truth.’ - So the opposite we all know is negative and evil. Not God like, however Devilish as you say, Do you Really want to go there? You all ready have. Then you do not belong in this website, or anywhere else for that matter where people seek each other out of want of help. Stay away from anger and rage, examine yourself Don’t go against your God given natural ability to Love, and help.
