I've lived my entire life doing everything for everybody. Family, friends, strangers... whoever needed something, I stepped up and tried my best to help them out.
What have I gotten in return? Rudeness, ungratefulness, animosity. I wasn't even looking for anything in return... if we just pretend I never did anything for you, I'd be okay with that. What I'm not okay with is the way I'm treated by so many people I've gone without for so they wouldn't have to. And I'm not talking about my kids or anything... I don't have any. Just random people in my life.
Is this really what the majority of humanity is like? Take take take with no giving? I don't understand because I was always taught that what you put out into the universe comes back to you.
I guess I was naive. I wish I didn't care so much about people think cause I'd tell everyone off and just take off to somewhere and start over as a jerk.
You know what? I guess I'm just like everyone else. I'm selfish... I DID expect something in return: kindness and respect. Silly me. And I know this sounds poor me, but that's how I feel right now. —I probably won't change either way, but sometimes it sucks to be the nice guy.
