“Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful.” I can’t remember who, but a celebrity used to say that in a TV commercial.
It’s true. Lots of people will hate her ’cause she is pretty, popular and rich. Why is that?
The reasons people hate are the same whether it is a person or a country. America gives billions to help other countries, more than any other, yet they hate us.
When you are strong, independent, and self-sufficient there will always be those who want to be you, to have what you have, to be able to do what you do.
You are the one people turn to when they need help. You give physically, financially and emotionally because you care. Everything is wonderful for a while, they are grateful, love you to death, you’re the best, until…
The crisis is over and they begin to feel good again.
Before long they resent you because they had to accept your help, couldn’t do it for themselves which creates frustration, jealousy and resentment.
Next thing ya know you’re the enemy. The same people who thought you were so great turn on you, find a way (true or not) to make you a bad guy.
It’s a vicious circle in some situations. You know what I mean, the bad feelings subside; you move on, everything is okay again.
May Your Glass Always Be Half Full
