Should we be silent or shout about our help?We as human beings cannot live in isolation and always dependent on each other be it within family, friends or society in general. We often help the members in our family, friends circle or in our society when needed. Helping others when needed is indeed a good gesture but is it a selfless service?
It is sometimes seen that when people help others it is not silent and selfless. They often want everyone to know that they helped someone and be in limelight. They also make the person they helped realize that they have done a favour to him. This makes a person who received help feel bad and awkward about it and they get uncomfortable. Then they start feeling even more burdened for the favours that they have received. For such people satisfaction only comes when they make publicity about their help.
On the other hand, there will be few people who will silently and selflessly help others without speaking or making publicity about it and they never make a person they helped feel awkward by telling him that they helped him so much. For such persons helping others is sufficient to give them self satisfaction and they do not expect any appreciation or publicity from outer world for it. They are silent about it.
So, which is the right way? Should we help others and shout loud about it? Wouldn't it take away the very essence of help? Or should we help others silently to get internal satisfaction without shouting about it unnecessarily? The later seems to be a right approach but in some situations, we may have to make others realize that we helped them if a person whom we helped is not humble about it that he does not value and realize the help he received.
