Recording good deeds…

This really annoys me. By all means do a good deed. But why do you have to film it and post it on social media. Flicking through my news feed on Facebook, I see videos of people posting their good deeds and it being shared and going viral. A good deed shouldn’t need to be broadcasted. The feeling of a good deed should be enough instead of seeking glory on the internet. 

That isn’t a good deed. That’s glory seeking and attention seeking. Yes it benefits another person but to make you look amazing to others online. Not to just be a good person. 

I hold doors for people, I help people who drop things, I give money to buskers and the homeless. I do not record myself doing it and post it online. I do this to help people. 

It really annoys me!
