This video exemplifies compassion and how people should act! It connects to my values because one thing that is really important to me is “treat others how you would want to be treated.” It is so important to think about how you would feel if put in someone else’s shoes before you leave them hanging. It’s one thing for us to say yeah we would help someone cross the street or help them if their stuck in the snow but its another thing to actually do it. In speaking to my congruence, I will be honest that I don’t help every single person I see in need but as many as I can, I do. It makes me feel so good to be able to just do little things for people. This video really reiterates how much people need each other. How important it is to be empathetic, understanding, and not in a rush all the time!
I love this video because it shows that there are really a lot of good people out there. Even though it might have only taken these people a few minutes to help, they still did it without having to be asked. I connect to the fact that I have been in situations that I have needed someones help-from needing someone to hold the door, to being stuck in the snow. Sometimes people have been there and sometimes not. But it reminds me how thankful I was when people were there. This video just makes me want to be a better person for others.
To help me live the life of helping others-I try to take the time to reflect and remember what others have meant to me and just what is important to me. Its important to take the time to just be aware. Without it we/I would forget whats important and I might end up being one of those people that doesn’t take the time to stop and help those in need. I don’t want to be one of those people, I want to be one of the people worthy of being in this kind of video compilation.
