What's The Selfless Thing You've Ever Done For Anyone? by Marayesa1: 4:24pm On Feb 17
Hello Nairalander
Times without numbers we've gone out of our ways to render some act of kindness to people to people around us. It could be a member of our family, a total stranger or your colleagues at the office. Most time these acts are done without any interior motive or personal gain.

That's bring me to the question " What selfless act have you render for anyone without any hidden motives?. I will be looking out for your responses.

I could remember giving part of my savings to a friend while I was in school. The money is for him to pay his school fees. So it's every important to share a token of our love to people around us same way FCMB did for some humanitarian during the Valentine's celebration.

I have done few which I will consider as huge risk on my side but the most dangerous one was the girl God used me and my friend to rescue from rapists.
Though I have gave brief narration of the scenario here before but the scene always reoccur in my head anytime anyone ask question like this.

The incident is just like soldiers trying to rescue kidnapped victim from kidnappers or terrorists.

Wow! Let me share this,

Back then in school, 100 level to be precise, we are like five good friends moving together as friends we normally go to each other house to eat. Seriously i think we were good friends until i foolishly told one of them to join me in my hostel

Four of us were leaving off camp why he was leaving school hostel, i thought i was doing the right thing until we started having issue over minor things like who will watch plate and who'll cook , i became fed up then i decide to move to self contain so one of our course mate told me about vacancy in his hostel.

He connected me to the caretaker then i paid for a year, then he pleaded with me for him to stay with me for two weeks before he sort his rent problem, because he was hanging out with two other guys in the hostel

This my course mate is even worst than my friend, this one will eat morning afternoon and evening leave plate for me to wash in fact i was the one feeding him,he stayed for six weeks before I beg him to leave it almost lead to fight before he manage to leave still yet he still come to my house to eat once a day.


Where he park to he could not stay there he ran back to the hostel, the last straw that break the camel back was when i cook oil rice and i refuse to give him,i did not even allow him to enter my house he wanted to enter my room i push him away he became angry and walk away. After some weeks he started spoiling my name calling me gay i don't have a girl friend, that am a thief a witch there is no name he did not call me so i confronted him and we fought.

Is been seven years na since we graduated we are still not in good terms, he told one of my close friend to speak to me, i just told my friend that if coincidentally we meet one day surely we will greet each other but apart from that i dont want him close to me, he still went ahead to send me friend request which i snob.

For me, i prefer helping people from afar.

When you say it, you are invariably encouraging others to follow suit.

But the act itself becomes for show. I agree with the sentiment that what we do with our right hands, we shouldn't let our left hands know.

While your thought is valid, I will still have to maintain my stand point. This is an anonymous platform and as such, whatever you share here cannot be linked to you in any way. Need I also say that the left hand/right hand ideology is quite misunderstood. Both hands are linked to your body. In other words, the left hand signifies family, friends, associates and so on and not anonymous people on an anonymous platform.

I had used the first eleven years of my prosperous independent economic life to proudly serve humanity in a selfless and voluntary slavery manner, and it taught me invaluable lessons that have made me know almost everything about the people of different leanings and shaped my philosophy about life, people, and everything. It is such a bitter-sweet experience.

I managed a business for a Brig.Gen around 2005/6 with the promise that he would help me to become a military officer via NDA ( I have finished my ND then).

When the form came out, I obtained it and informed the General who just need to sign for me and present me as his slot for that year. I was surprised when the man said I should wait for another year, I got to know that the man was only deceiving me to keep me in the business, according to his houseboy that's his usual promise to those that left the business bfre I took over it. So I decided to give the pin code of the form to my area brother's cousin who eventually become a military man after he graduated from NDA. I never met the boy but the last time he called,he was a Captain already.

I didn't regret helping that total stranger.
