I think if you regularly do nice things, then it makes it stand out when you make a mistake. If you make mistakes all the times, and do the occasional nice thing, people will remember the nice thing. The moral of the story...
It's crazy that someone would post something with such negative connotation like this. Let it go. If someone wants to hold a grudge, that is their problem. Don't worry about that. Keep doing nice things and expect nothing in return.
A l o h a ! To all - The statement I prefer to attempt to uphold daily has much to offer than this droll restatement of forewarning and discouragement -
"Never underestimate the value [or impact] of even the most insignificant of wholesome acts."
It is a universal message overtly reflecting on the validity of Chaos Theory in everyday living. Oh, yes, it is attributed to a luminary who lived 2,500 years ago. Some things do not lose any meaning over the course of that linearity we refer to as time.
If the above is true for you, you need to stop being a pussy and surround yourself with better people. Most people in my life are appreciative of the nice things I do for them because they know the consequences of not appreciating it :-)
Very true, agreed! But, when a person is nice enough to help others, then that person shd never bother about negative remarks from others, 'coz doing nice things does give him 'satisfaction', so.. it more than compensates for the pain from the otherwise situation!! ATTITUDE again!! :D ... This is the essence of every religious scripture... 'Do your Duty, without any expectations'!!
Yeah its very hurtful, but it doesn't mean you should stop being nice. One day they will realize , irrespective of your mistakes and their attitude towards such mistakes doesn't change who you are:the nice person!
sometimes though people can do mean things and then do one amazing thing and you never forget that either... people and complicated and flawed and yet still beautiful and delicate. It may not be forgotten but truly forgiven is what i believe is key.
It true and also it a lesson to us to do nice and good things only ,once you do "the bad thing" it overides all the good once that you were showing the world, and makes it the only thing that will stick in peoples mind ,eg Bill Clinton and Lowinzsky and many more that I'm sure you can relate to . I wouldn't worry about it cos, its human nature.
Life is like that but we should write bad things in the sand and good things on rock. Good things can never go unrewarded. We do good things for the love of God and the inner sense of good should bring us joy. Allelulia
