One of the saddest things I see posted on Facebook every day is something about how you can never count on others to re-turn your favours or care about you like you care about them.
How do you feel about that? Do you feel that every time you help someone out, they owe you a return favour? Is that how the world should work?
My feelings are pretty much the opposite of that. I think it is important to just help people out. All day, every day. Every chance you get. That is why we are here. To make others feel better.
If you think that people owe you favours, then you have this little sense of entitle-ment and will nearly always be disappoint-ed. You will have a lot of negativity in your life. The actions of others should not deter-mine your happiness. That is your job.
I will finish with this note. For many years I have really tried to just help anyone, whether it was a physical act or just a statement of support. It all makes a difference. And then I was sick, very sick. And so many of you have stepped up and helped. You have literally saved my life and are still making it liveable. Some of you are folks I have never even met. Any good thing I have ever done has come back to me a hundred times. Thank you.
