Everyone has heard of good deeds and Karma, but does doing good deeds for others actually make a difference? I believe so, because doing good deeds not only feels good to one’s self, but also makes a positive impact on whom the good deed was affecting. Also, if others see good deeds taking place, it may inspire many to do a good deed for someone else. As much as doing good deeds for others may help them, it also might give the person doing the good deed some benefits as well; such as feeling better about themselves for helping others in need, and it may, in turn bring good deeds unto them.
To begin, I believe doing good deeds for others can make a wonderful difference not only in one’s life, but also in the community. Sometimes people need to be reminded that good deeds and good people still exist in today’s world. When good deeds are done to others it brings them a sense of hope, because it lets them know others still care and can do good. When people throughout a community see good deeds being done, it may inspire them to go out and do a good deed themselves. Moreover, the feelings people receive from these deeds being done is absolutely incredible.
Secondly, when people do a good deed for another they are not only affecting that individual, but also affecting themselves. If people are in need and another person helps them out or does a good deed for them, it may also bring the doer of the good deed a sense of accomplishment, pride or other feelings of cheerfulness. While doing good deeds helps out others, it really can most help out the person doing the good deed. Sometimes people may think that they are only helping the other person out, but really when helping out other people, they are also building self-integrity and selflessness for themselves.
Furthermore, has anyone heard about this Karma thing? Well, basically it is a philosophy that states if good deeds are done, then good deeds will happen in return. Now, with that said, one does not have to believe in Karma to try it out. Doing good deeds just makes the community a better place, and the more good deeds people do, the better chance they have for good deeds to be done unto them. Also, if one does a good deed, it can cause a ripple effect and inspire that person to do a good deed and so on and so forth. Good deeds just spread like wildfire. That one person is seen doing it and others feel the need to help out and participate as well, which is a great thing in most people’s minds.
All in all, I believe good deeds do make a wonderful difference and should be done as much as possible, as many times as possible. That good deeds inspire others to do good as well, which is a great thing and only brings more positive energy to the community. Also, when one does good deeds for others, they may have good deeds done to them back. Doing good deeds, no matter how small or insignificant they may seem; does make a difference. More people should recognize this fact. It would make the world a better place.
