|Describe a time when you helped others.
Helping others is a gesture of kindness which people show towards needful. We all need help at some point in our life when we are distressed or in a trouble. When we help someone, it makes us feel contented and peaceful; moreover, it determines our behavior towards others. If I have to talk about an incident then it would undoubtedly the time when I lend a helping hand to a family in the nearby locality.
The Man was the sole breadwinner of his family. He was not much educated and he chiefly relied on the small workshop where he repairs electronic equipment. After a devastating earthquake, his workshop was demolished and he had no additional revenue source or capital to rebuild it. I read about this unfortunate event in the newspaper and I was so touched with their tragic story that I decided to help them with whatever help possible. I told the whole story to my three best friends when I went to my college. Finally, we went to our class coordinator and explained her regarding the suffering of the family. She provided us with some ideas to raise money for the suffering family from other classes.
The students were kind enough to donate sympathizing with the suffering of that person and his family. We collected a good sum of the money which surpassed my anticipation. We went to the shop and get the reconstruction of the shop started and gave the remaining sum of money to the man so that he became able to restart his workshop again and earn bread and butter for his family.
I really felt blessed and emotional when the husband and wife blessed and prayed for us. But the real surprise was the one which I received in my college from the director in front of the whole college. I was given a token of respect and appreciation for coming forward for a noble cause. He appreciated me for the kind deed I have done for that the man. Moreover, all the praise and word of wisdom motivated us all to do more such kind deeds. That day I realized how enthralling, peaceful and gratifying it is to lend someone a hand. The peace one receives by helping someone needy is beyond explanation.
