We always hear people mention "Good people, good deed", and we always say we need to be good and do good deeds. But actually how can we define good people and good deed? Is there really a standard for reference or do we just judge by impression? Let me share a little story with you. That's a little good deed in my life
One day two years ago, I went to a shopping mall with my friends. After lunch, when I went to the toilet, I discovered a mobile phone. That's the newest model 4S. At that moment, I don't know what I can do. I just knew that I would not take it for myself, but I worried when I took it to the reception, the staff might not give the mobile phone back to the owner. So I tried to turn on the phone. Luckily there was not password to unlock. Therefore I checked the contact list. I called the last contact person of the list and told her friend she lost her mobile phone in Causeway Bay and I wanted to know how I could give it back to the owner. After the phone call, we met in a café to return the phone. The owner told me that she was in a hurry to go to the hospital to visit her family so she left the phone in the toilet. She was very surprised she could get back the mobile phone, because it was the newest phone. She worried people would be greedy and kept it. Hereby she really rejoiced for that.
The above story is a real experience of mine. I think the main point of this story is we need to have empathy for everyone. When we decide how to solve the problem, we need to consider others feeling. We should make regard others' the problems as our problems, so that you will make the best decision. Show more compassion and pay attention to others. We don't need to do mighty or honorable matter. Just do the right thing you can to help. Relationship is really simple. Be good to others and then they will be kind and nice to you too. Therefore, just be sympathetic to others, maybe you will need some people's help one day.
To summarize my point, "Good people good deed" isn't hard for anyone. Share your compassion to make the world peaceful brimming with love. It's really easy for all of you. Remember one for all, all for one. I can do it and so can you.
