Two days ago I told you about my trip to Würzburg. I am very pleased that you liked my report and my photos. Because something interesting happened to me during my stay in the city, I decided to tell you about it.

The day I arrived in Würzburg, I wanted to buy milk for my morning coffee in the evening (I did not have breakfast in my accommodation). I like to drink coffee with milk and not with cream. I don't like powdered milk either. It was late but I found a small shop which was not closed yet. I was one of the last customers. In front of me in the queue stood a black woman probably of African origin. She bought many things and had to pay over 26 Euros (over $30). The woman wanted to pay with a card. She put the card in the card reader and entered her pin. Unfortunately the payment was not successful. She tried it again and again. The payment was refused each time (at that moment I thought again about the advantages of paying with Bitcoin Cash. Unfortunately, the shop did not accept Bitcoin Cash).

After the third or fourth attempt, the woman was slowly desperate and started looking for the cash. Unfortunately she did not have enough of it. She had about 15 Euros, so she was still missing over 11 Euros (about $13). She began to sift through her purchases and sort out the most expensive ones so that she had enough cash for the rest. Then something happened that I had not expected. Behind me stood a very young man, maybe 18, maybe 20 years old, who suddenly said to the cashier "I'll pay the rest".

I think that the black woman did not understand German very well and did not really know what would happen. After a while, when she realized that the young man had paid for her, I saw in her eyes first astonishment and then gratitude. The simple gratitude that a stranger, without asking, helped her in a difficult situation. I don't know if they talked further and if she gave him the money back at some point. It is not that important. What is important is that there are people who are willing to help other people selflessly, without receiving anything (except gratitude) in return.

On the way back from my trip I had a completely different experience. My train suddenly stopped and did not go on. That was unusual. Now that the train had stopped running, I knew something must have happened. Shortly afterwards there was an announcement from the conductor that someone threw himself in front of another train and committed suicide. I don't know what kind of person it was, but it was certainly a desperate person who needed help, just like the African woman in the shop.

Unfortunately there was probably nobody around to help the person. I do not know what kind of problems the person had. Whether he had financial problems or other problems, but I know that the person must have been very desperate. And I know that all problems can be solved if you get enough help. I can well imagine that this person would also have had this gratitude in his eyes if he had been helped, but for this person, any help is too late.

I don't need help at the moment, but I have had situations in my life where I needed help and other people have helped me. I am grateful to them for that. I am grateful that I am alive, that I am healthy, that I can use read.cash, that I can tell you and that I get your comments and tips. I hope that you too feel this gratitude, and I was very pleased to see that there are people who selflessly help others, like the young man in the shop.

Being alive and healthy everyday are the only reasons to be grateful. We are actually lucky compared to the unfortunate ones. And just like that good samaritan who helped the lady, you are also a great help to other users here through your tips which motivates them to do good here in readcash.

Likewise sir, I always felt gratitude when somebody helps me during downtimes. I always appreciate things even if it is a little act of kindness. That is why I always show some kindness to everyone around as long as I can in return, who knows that little kindness will give the person hope, just like how I felt when I am in need.

Humans are social creatures. In the course of life, we will face many problems. When we need someone to help. Someone may have a problem with money. Again Someone may need mental support . And those who are by our side in bad times. We should be grateful to them.

Poor man. I bet he was so desperate for some help but couldn't seem to find any. If only he just wait for a little while coz maybe the help he need is on its way. But any help is too late now.

I had been in situation like that too when I almost want to end my life, but my faith is stronger than my urge to die. Plus, I guess I was just lucky enough because I've had my friends to help me out whenever I needed something. They were my family when I had no one else because I was away from my family to work.

By the way, I also love coffee with milk but powdered milk is fine because fresh milk is quite expensive.

It's good that you have overcome your crisis and that you were lucky to have your friends around you. Such crises are difficult to manage on your own.

My husband is the same, will go out just to get milk for his coffee. That young man will be blessed abundantly as he becomes a blessing to that woman. And I'm sure that woman will not forget what he did. We will not know how his act of kindness affects the life of people who witness that. It is like a domino effect that will carry on. When you receive help, pass it on. The secret book teaches me about gratitude and I start practising it at work and in my everyday life. And it works like wonders! It an amplifier! Sad about the person who commits suicide as we will not know how he got badly hit in his life and chose to give up and nobody was there or he might not ask for any help and keep to himself/herself. That's an eye-opening experience you had. And thank you for sharing it with us. Have a good day/night!

Selflessness and egosimus are two opposites. Today's world is built on egoism "I only give you something when I get something in return". Everything is an exchange, a contract. Fortunately, there is also a lot of selflessness. People help each other without asking for anything in return. They help because they can and want to.

Thank you very much for your tip. I appreciate every comment and every, even a very small tip.

I'm no good in words or terminologies, my vocabulary is very limited. Today I learn egoism from you. And never know that word before. I think we all have a bit of egoism in away. But more of me since I can remember never expect anything from anyone. I'm more of a giver. But when it comes to work, I want what I deserve. If I work hard and I knew that I did then I'm expecting something in return. And the people helping each other without asking anything in return I believe the universe is working to give it back to them. I help because I wanted to and I'm happy doing it. And well I know the feeling of having nothing and the joy of receiving something! :)

You always have something. You may not have anything material, no money, but you can have something else. You can have friends, you can have good health, you can have good humour and you can have a lot of helpfulness and a good heart. That is often more important than money.

Until mankinds understand the essence of living this life will never balance. Do we have any reason to be here if we can not give? Giving is the essence of living, to live is to give. Those who have mastered this will live to see the fulfillment of their days on Earth. However, given my experience here on read.cash I must say you are one of such who always lend a helping hands to a desperate soul. I remember my birthday article some months ago, you will not know how the gift you sent to my wallet was of help to me and I will never forget that. I think you met your type in that shop.Then gratitude must be given when necessary, although there are some who wouldn't be humble enough to express gratitude when a kindness is given, yet I must say without it without giving and gratitude the world will remain unhealthy to live in. Thank you.

Yes, there are also ungrateful people, but from my experience I can say that the vast majority of people are very grateful when you help them.

I love it when role models in a particular realm aspire and talk others into being like them. You are a helper. Random acts of kindness save lives probably unknowingly to the giver!

You have presented the words in a very nice way. I really appreciate you.Not long ago, a girl next to our house committed suicide a few days ago by hanging herself. She had a six-month-old baby.She complained to the world that she had lost hope of survival, so she left her baby and chose to commit suicide.There are very few fortunate people in the world who have the courage to stand by their side in difficult times.Again, this is exactly the time when your people behave like strangers.There are some people who are financially distressed and some who are mentally distressed.That is why it is not right to impose any pain on ourselves. We should share it with others and share it with the people close to us who can save me from this problem.May Allah bless us all to know the right path and to walk on the right path.

Yes, unfortunately people are often "invisible". They have nobody and are lonely. Through such an act, draw attention to themselves.
