Question:
Basically what have you done that was morally right and you didn't expect anything in return?

---------------------------

My story:
The other day I was walking to work and I was about to walk by the hospital when I noticed a lady sitting on the ground. When I came closer to her I realized by her appearance she was homeless. The woman called me over and asked me if I could help her to the bus stop. I agreed to help her. She took some time trying to stand on her feet and I tried to help her stand but she insisted to stand on her own. When she finally stood she grabbed a hold of my arm and leaned on me for a couple blocks to the bus stop. I felt bad leaving her alone at the bus stop. And then I realized earlier there were people walking in front of me by the hospital but they all ignored her. I wonder how many people she had to ask for help? It makes me sad that most people just care for themselves and won't sacrifice anything without some sort of incentive.

I gave Birthday presents to people I knew this month, even though they didn't really expect anything, so I guess I made them feel special in a way.

I would say a good deed I've done recently was share my lunch and sport bus money to a stranger.
Never got anything back, and didn't really expect to.

giving love and life advices on CR forums. i don't really expect anything in return, i just hope that that person could gain some motivation or positivity or something from my words.

i'm no professional, but i think that most people... when they're feeling down, they just need someone to listen to them genuinely... knowing that someone listened, can actually give them hope? idk... at least that's how i feel.

What I like about this story is that not only did you provide aid, you kept at it. The 'end' of the 'good deed' took time to complete. Thus, you spent more than a passing amount of time and effort.

I've always been a popular girl, for obvious shallow reasons. Yet my uncle is probably one of the most interesting persons I know (well I have more than 1 uncle so they vary). He's a cynical jerk that never asks a question that isn't important in some manner. My Uncle is also one of the biggest jerks I've ever met.

Like must of us, my family pretty much labeled me 'the good girl'. It was my uncle which took that experience to new heights with the following conversation. Bear in mind this was a few years ago and I'm paraphrasing.

My mom: She's a good girl. Gets good grades (Speaking of me in the 3rd person, while I sat on the couch)
My Uncle kept his peace until my mom left. Then he looked me straight in the eye and asked me: Are you a good girl?
ME: Well, duh! I think I do OK.
Uncle: Let's see. Did you help anyone today?
Me: I helped mom with laundry.
Uncle: Did you help anyone today outside your circle of friends, family or amicable acquaintances?
Me: No.
Uncle: Did you, yesterday?
Me: No.
Uncle: How about in the past month?
Me: No.

Than congratulations. You're an average person. Most people will consider you 'good'.
Me: (with an eye-roll) Well what have YOU done?
Uncle: Nothing. I'm not a good person. I simply love my family and friends. The rest be damned.


And so my uncle, the freaking Jerk, taught me the difference between being a 'normal person' and being a 'good person'. Helping someone without expectation or reward in return.

Almost none of us do this in a significant manner.

I used to be a better person who did things for random people. Now at most all I do is hold doors open for people and sometimes groups. I just don't care enough to do more than that.

I got the urge to poke my cat's stomach - which annoys him - and with the power of my endlessly compassionate soul, I resisted.

I'm still trying to decipher and define what's "morally right".

I'm been in bed for 4 days with a fractured foot.

The only good things I could imagine myself doing is getting out of everyone's way.

I was clubbing last July 4th with some friends and I ran into a girl who was drunk outside near the smoking area. I chatted with her when on a smoke break. Apparently, her friends left and she was there by herself without a car. Awful.

So I offered for her to hang out with us and got her some water to help with the alcohol. She accepted and came with me. Eventually, we went back to my friend's nearby apartment to hang out a while since she had more alcohol there and it was a warm, comfortable place. The other girls drank but I did not. I took care of her. I had to take off her shoes and coat for her since she was drunk and stumbling around. I made sure she was drinking plenty of water and cleared off a couch so she could lie down. After about 5 hours, I sobered up so I could drive and she was able to move around better.

I drove her back to her house at like 6 in the morning. Coincidentally, she was friends with another person in my group and lived like 3 minutes away from my own house.

There's no need for me to boast about what I've done.
