Question Is this wrong??? - October 29th 2009, 01:01 AM

Ok, I don't know how to say this...
I am a very independant person... But there is somthing I do that bothers me in my everyday life... I sacrifice things from myself to help others. Like today, we were presenting extra credit. My grades are very high, but I neede a few more points to get it up to the highest point possible. prepared an amzing extra credit. But a girl in my class asked me for it, so that she could hand it in with her name... And I didn't want to, but I gave it to her. I just can't say no. I know she has a low grade. No one made me, but I gave it anyway and then I feel bad about it.

But if someone starts to take advantage of thet I can get harsh and make them back off, I told you, I'm independant...
Well, I still give in to people who I feel need something more then I do...

IS THIS WRONG??? Please respond

Hi Loveless,

There is a difference between helping someone who needs it to raise their mark and doing the work for them. It wasn't fair for this girl to even ask you for your work and suggest putting it under her name. You put in the work and effort and you should get the marks. When it comes to school, you deserve the marks you earn for yourself. It isn't your job to raise other people's marks, no matter how low they are.

This doesn't mean you shouldn't help. Offer up some ideas that they could try to do in order to raise their mark or guide them into a project they could do on their own. Whatever you do, do not give anyone your work again. This is plagiarism and your classmate, as well as you, could get in a lot of trouble for it. Schools really crack down on these kinds of things. Maybe your teacher might realize that this girl didn't do that extra credit and then penalize her for it.

It's not wrong to help people, but you shouldn't do everything for them. I think there is a difference between helping and letting someone take advantage. Be aware of what people are asking you and find out whether it is an appropriate situation to help.

Take care.

The great artists of our time are the ones who created something timeless. But it was never them defining it that way.
Everyone has a story. What's yours?

SI it's a good thing to be kind to people.
But think of it as the lon run

is she gonna thank you when she has no idea whats she talking about because failing and you halped her cheat?.

What yu did was right and wrong.
You helped her but you feel guilty.

You can say no(:

Noone will be angry with yu!

Chances are if you explained yourself about it,
She wouldve understood and found someone else to cheat off of X]
