when you do something nice (that takes very little effort) you feel all good inside....and it's quite out of proportion to the good deed.

liek a radno act of kindness

Because we want to be needed/liked?

Because it is better to give than receive

Thats it I think WWW, tho' I do like random acts of kindness.

Is it casting bread upon the waters (non religously) sort of what goes around comes around

katymac Sat 16-Jul-05 19:32:24

Cam - I kind of sgree, but why?

its the little things that make all the difference in the world

so don´t discount the good vibe that a small deed can bring as out of proportion!

Thank you, O greta one

fishfinger Sat 16-Jul-05 19:49:20

fishfinger Sat 16-Jul-05 19:49:55

katymac Sat 16-Jul-05 19:53:42

If you plan to do "good" things doesn't that kind of negate the meaning

If you only do them so you feel good - that's wrong isn't it

fishfinger Sat 16-Jul-05 19:54:27

no i dont hink so
I planned to haev a freinds kids last weekend a nd i really di it so she and her dh could get away
kids were good fun too

Cam Sat 16-Jul-05 19:55:58

Because we're here to help each other

katymac Sat 16-Jul-05 19:56:59

But you didn't think "well if I look after their kids - they will like me more" or even if I have her children she will have mine oneday

Which I feel that american site is a bit that way

You probably said "they'd really like it and it's easy enough to do" or something..not what I will get back in return
