Life’s experiences are bitter to the core sometimes. One may be good and kind enough to help others, but that does not guarantee a similar return for him. Some people are so selfish that they exploit every opportunity they get to uplift themselves! Many such people in life are around us who are our friends, family members and acquaintances. They remember you only when they are in need of you, as soon as the purpose is solved, they vanish. The self-absorbed people do not understand the sacrifices their friends make for them or they do not understand the love behind the help. Sometimes it also happens that you only do for others and when you need some help, you find everyone is busy. Or, you help a particular person without being acknowledged at all but at the moment you stop doing you get blamed. So life’s relationships are indeed complicated. One has to come across the selfish, the opportunists, the leg pullers, the jealous. Remember, not to permit anyone to exploit your kindness to an extent that you regret of being kind. If we allow ourselves to exploitation for a long time, then it may produce negative thoughts in our mind to an extent that we start hating the people and enroll ourselves for solitude.
Life is not very easy to tackle. A training from childhood is needed to distinguish between good and bad. To know people’s intentions is an art and need inquisitiveness. Understand a person before you show kindness or the real face of yours. Do not give permission to anyone to sit high and look low and judge you. Rather, keep few genuine friends, look for them, enjoy life with few true friends around. This will help you to live with positivity and life will remain peaceful. Enroll yourself in a club where peace and kindness are priorities but not selfishness and opportunism.
