Milk of human Kindness- Steemit version

in #steemit2 years ago

"Yet doe I feare thy Nature, It is too full o' th' Milke of humane kindnesse."

From Shakespeare's Macbeth, 1605

20 days ago, I wrote a post about how people were kind to me when I went for a trip with one of my friends to the south of Tunisia and we had our small tant and kept wandering in and around the desert and slept wherever we ended up when "bed time" came.


Now that I Am 50 days old in steemit, I saw another version of that human kindness. The cyber kindness. Steemians can use this platform to make a difference and make people happy.

I'm not talking about charity here, though some great projects should be mentioned and highlighted as much as possible like @youarehope by @sircrok and #gratefulvibes by @paradise-found and I'm sure there are much more.

I'm here to talk about another sort of that milk of human kindness. This one is all about having real relationships in a virtual world. It's about being a close friend, like really close, to someone who lives across the globe.

Now here are the acts of human kindness that I recieved in steemit in a chronological order:

  • When @paradise-found gave me 5SBD as a birthday present. As far as I can remember that was the only gift I got for that birthday in both my real life and my cyber one. It was really unexpected and that's what made it more meaningful.


  • When @saffisara sent me 3SBD with absolutely no reason. It was so hard for me to accept them but it was the first time she gives me smething and we were very close so I didn't have any choice.


  • when that same crazy @saffisara foreced me to accept some SBD. It started with 5SBD and I gave them back to her with a note that says "twin you're amazing" and I told her in a DM that "I had to return it this time". I really didn't want to be that kind of friend who keeps taking from you and you keep helping him when he can't pay you back. If I can't give back, I'd rather not take. But she wouldn't take no for an answer, she just gave them back to me 6SBD this time, then I figured out I should stop this gift fight before the amont gets even higher!

  • When @carolkean sent me 1 SBD and said it was because I'm a poet and I'm cute hehe. That really made my day, that day I spent so many extra hours at work with so much stress and so much work that needed to be done in so little time. But @carolkean made me smile in the middle of all that.


  • when @tattodjay gave me two tips in a row for one post. So far these are 100% of the tips I ever had since I joined steemit. They made me so happy that I decided to start tipping people to spread that same happiness. I sent my next post's payout to @tipu and I spent most of it in one day tipping people and enjoying it. Tipping is really fun I suggest you start doing it if you are not. It helps you upvote one post two times, it helps you give a real upvote if your VP is as weak as mine and it spreads a special sort of happiness to both the "tipper" and the "tipped" so Lets Make Tips Great Again!


  • The last act of kindness I recieved so far, and the one that made me decide to write this post, was when @c0ff33a delegated 40SP to me. I don't know how he found out that I was having bandwidth issues after delegating to @themothership, I chose not to ask for help and to survive it on my own just like I did when I first joined steemit. But again I don't think it would be polite to refuse it. I'll try to figure out a way to give him and all these amazing people on this list the same amont of happiness that they gave me, or even more, because they deserve all the happines of both worlds and more.



You are too kind to me my friend, the truth is I am just a nosey old man who likes looking into people's digital wallet! I was looking through your blog posts to upvote and comment on one - and then went on to look in you wallet. It's a little help for you, when your trying to grow on here the last thing you need is constant issues with posting because of bandwidth - the delegation is a loan and when you are able to grow your own Steem Power enough to be able to post without issues. It's warming to see so many others helping you out, sometimes these little acts can make real differences to people. Thank you for thanking me - it was not needed but I appreciate it.

Thank you for thanking me

Well then thank you for thanking me for thanking you 🤣

Steemit is full of amazingly kind people I was lucky to meet some of them including 👉 YOU 👈 ☕️
You know what they say ?
They say ☕️ is a saint 😉

Amazing people of Steemit! <3
I also received a birthday gift from Papa Bear @paradise-found, 5 STEEM!
I wasn't expecting that at all, so generous! :))

He is a great and generous man 😊 I'm glad I met him !

Nice info bro thx..

😏 😒 😓

I can feel the warmth hugging me through this cyber-post! I've been on the receiving end of many kind actions on Steemit. It has really been a wonderful experience, and I'm glad that you are experiencing that as well! I'm happy to be interacting with you - you do seem like a real nice and genuine guy, and I am sure that you are one the cogs in the steemit-kindness-machine ;) keep it going!

I guess it can be generalised then that steemians are cool
Of course there are some exceptions but we can always choose to focus on the bright side 😉

I do think I'm one of the exceptions. My ego tells me that i'm hot, which is the opposite of cool...


you are too funny Hot Jeremy
and I'm so glad I'm interacting with you too ^^

شكرا للمشاركة المميزة, فعلا هكذا امور تفرح الانسان و تحفز لمزيد من العطاء و النجاح ان شاء الله :)

Of course being continuously curated by @arabsteem is something I'm very grateful for as well.

Well, dang, you're beyond cute, now that I see a full frontal shot of your face :-)! Now I wish I'd had a hundred SBD to send, if such a tiny little token gesture made a difference. We say here "It was nothing to write home about," i.e., "No big deal," but you wrote about it! COOL!

Thank you @carolkean you are too kind! 😍
This helps me keep track of who helped me up, to know where to distribut my wealth in case I become a whale one day 😎
