Helpful people are pretty rare these days and it’s always nice to hear about people helping others for no reason other than they want to. How many people do you know that are nice and offer a hand when you are in need. Most people can count these on one hand. So when you find somebody like that, it’s important to let them know that their assistance is appreciated and reciprocated. 

Reciprocated Helpfulness (a working theory)

Basically, in a nutshell, if somebody has been good to you, then one day you can return the favour and be there for them in return. This is a bit different to paying it forward, which is anticipating people goodness and that they will pass on a good deed as one has been done to them.  So the theory goes, that if somebody helps you and you are grateful to them, they will continue being helpful. If somebody is not recognised for their assistance, most people might stop doing it. Only those who are wired to be good people can continue without any recognition. I would love to hear from you about this subject and listen to your point of view or perhaps your working theory.  Drop by the Facebook group to tell me what you think. 


I am always a bit shocked when somebody helps me so I often respond with a thank you note. In fact the art of saying thank you is often lost and if you can graciously show your gratitude, I believe it makes people more inclined to help you out next time.
