It Isn’t Fair, It Isn’t Right, It Just Is

by Maxi

HelpHave you ever helped someone and your good deed ruined the friendship? Or caused a rift in the family? And somehow you end up the bad guy?

Why you ask? How can she/he treat me this way after all I have done for her/him? I have asked myself that question many times … until recently. The answer is in the question: all you have done.

People resent it when they can’t do for themselves what you can do for them; it makes them feel powerless. It doesn’t matter how the situation came about, they take their frustration out on you.

We in turn are devastated. We don’t expect the world but a thank you would be nice. Only the person you helped isn’t thinking of gratitude or returning the favor or paying back the money, they have moved on to the next problem.

It isn’t fair, it isn’t right, it just is.

This is what I have learned:
If you do something for someone else for any reason other than you want to … it’s the wrong reason.
