Yup. I try to help people here, and sometimes I get direct feedback.

I help people in my building - I do small errands and favours, I listen to their problems, and I try to do nice things when people are down - I get thank-yous and, sometimes, gifts.

I think its good to help others out it stops me from feeling I’m just vegetating. I volunteer at an elderly care project. Ive also been doing befriending phone calls during the pandemic plus i volunteer on this forum

I always enjoy to help others reach their targets/goals, by the week ending/month ending with my when it might happen, occasional on call volunteering in adminstrative work. By that i mean, I enjoy helping the paid s taff out.

Trying to get people to consider a different paradigm can be difficult, all you can do is keep trying to redescribe your concept, and hope it eventually clicks. And hopefully not make the other person feel nagged.

Hm, not really. I mean sometimes I say nice things or try to be helpful, but i think I'm equally as vengeful against people I feel have done me wrong. I also think I drag other people down. So i feel like it doesn't really equal out. So I might be helping people but not in a way that makes the world a better place. If that makes sense.
