Chapter 13
Help A Stranger

Everyone has their own story. Everyone deals with different challenges in their life and we all handle them differently. But no matter if we are a very outgoing person with lots of friends, or a quiet person who stays to their self and only has a few friends, we all need someone who is there for us. We need someone who will make us feel better on out worst days.  When they are hurting to ask for help. Some people don't know how to ask for help.

Sometimes all it takes is a smile to brighten someone's day. So smile at everyone. If you see someone walking alone looking sad, smile at them. You never know what they are thinking or what they are feeling. Sometimes a smile from a stranger can turn a suicidal person into a fighter who wont give up.

If you see someone eating alone, ask if you could join them. Start a conversation about absolutely anything, You may be the only person to talk to them all day. They might not have any friends. But if you just sit with them, maybe they wont feel worthless or so alone.

Compliment someone. Tell a girl in front of you in Starbucks you love her hair or her outfit. Tell the boy sitting alone in class everyday that you admire his drawing skills, or love for something.

If you se someone struggling with a math problem, try and help them understand it, even if you have no clue how to do it either. Figure it out together.

If you see someone crying, comfort them. Even if you don't know them.

Strangers can be your best friend, if only for a moment. Sometimes, the smallest effort by a stranger can change someone's outlook on the whole day or week. The smallest gestures, a smile, a hello, will bring joy to their life.

Go out of your way. Help A Stranger. Think, if you had a bad day, what would make you feel even a little better? Then do that for someone else. Help make a difference in someone's life.

Because you never know, the person you help today, may go on to help many other people, including you one day.

The life you save today, could be the one who saves yours later.
