The title of this post pretty much sums it all up, no good deed ever goes unpunished. It seems to be human nature to focus on the negative things in life as opposed to the positive. So many things can go right in life and that one thing that went wrong gets hyper focus.
I always try to do the right thing and help people out. After all, life is about second chances, learning from our mistakes and growing as a person. Doing the right thing comes with a high price tag though. Doing the right thing takes love. Loves consists of pure vulnerability. It’s a sad thing to think how some people are just ungrateful. They open the door to your house of vulnerability and have no respect whatsoever for the things therein. I am tempted to play the woe is me card here, but you know what??? It ain’t happening!! I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again. My kindness will at times be confused and taken advantage of, but that should never and will never stop me from being me. The devil is out and on the prowl to make us all think that doing the right thing never pays off. It does pay off! It’s called integrity! With integrity comes respect and with respect comes success.
Let’s try and keep the focus on the good things in life. Although it’s hard, there’s no better feeling than knowing the devil lost this battle today.
