Throughout my life I have been told that I’m too kind, generous and selfless. Like it’s a bad thing. They say I should think about myself more and be less giving because people take advantage and don’t care about me or help me when they can.
Now this may be true, but, that just shows who they are as people, and is not a reflection on me.
I just give people enough rope to hang themselves with then walk away.
If I have helped someone regardless of how they disrespect or disregard me, my heart is full knowing I did all I could with what I had to work with.
From what I can see in the world today, too many people only help if there is something in it for themselves. They become hardened by all the ungrateful, disrespect from their efforts to lead by example. Or simply are out for all they can get.
How then is the world meant to change? Or as I hear and say all too often, ‘go back to how it used to be’?
We must not become bitter at the unrecognition, the rejection, the disrespect, the lies and false promises. Nor succumb to the feelings of isolation that these people ignite within us.
We must recognize the gift they bring, the awareness of your own inner strength that in spite of others ignorance you have the ability to forgive the wounded child in front of you and love them anyway.
We the way showers may have chosen a difficult path but we must continue to hold the lantern up in the dark, so that others of like mind can find us. If we succumb to the darkness of our ego self then we will be lost forever in the sea of lost souls.
Beautiful words Mia. You are so right. Don’t charge yourself, keep the gentle, kind and caring soul.you are. And keep shining your light in those dark places.
Thank you. Namaste sistar. 💗💗💗
Beautifully spoken from your heart Maria. And it is people like yourself that are the way-showers .
It is only by example and changing our ways of Being, by showing unselfishness and giving and sharing,so that others will one day see they live from a point of lack.. Whereby they Take, take and take, in their greed for more..
Where as you know the rewards of giving and loving unconditionally..
But Like you also said there comes a point too where you have to also see others perhaps will never change their ways,
And so the only person we can change is ourselves.. As we learn to GIVE back that energy to ourselves and our own well being.. Like going within to change ourselves, by doing so we contribute to the whole who eventually too will change..
Many thanks Maria for your GIVING HEART… <3.. But Please save a little for yourself.. ❤ We all of us need to nurture ourselves at various points in our lives.. ❤
Blessings to you xxx You are loved xx
Thank you Sue. Yes you are so right, wasted energy on the blinkered is best served to self.
Many thanks to you too for Always giving from the heart and holding that lantern high. Xxx 💗🙏
Much LOVE back.. and keep focused upon Self for a time.. It is not being Selfish.. Its called self preservation.. and Nurturing Self.. ❤ for the next phase of Energy to Come..
