Never regret being a good person to the wrong people. Your behavior says everything about you, and their behavior says everything about them. ~Marc & Angel
It is only human to wonder at times after you have been at the receiving end of crappy behavior from someone who you have been nothing but helpful to. And it happens to most of us.
Sometimes it is because the person treating you like this is just so absorbed in their own life, sometimes in their own pain, that they cannot look beyond it. They fail to see that someone else is going out of their way to be an angel to them.
Sometimes it is because they truly don’t care about anyone else but themselves, and maybe a few more people.
Sometimes…and hurtful as it may be, you are not important enough for them. And that’s OK. Everyone has a right to choose who is important in their life and who is not. I know it hurts, but it’s true, isn’t it? Don’t you have a right to choose who is important in your life? They do too. In this case, respect their choice, and step away.
And sometimes, they are just being jerks. As simple as that.
There could be many other reasons too. But the result is, we end up feeling hurt, and wondering – should we have even reached out to them? The answer is always
This does not mean you take crap from another person. This does not mean you let go of your own dignity and self esteem. It just means you help when you feel called to help, and expect nothing in return. Not even an acknowledgement.
Will you hurt when they don’t acknowledge your help or even your existence? Yes, most probably. But let go. I always go to EFT Tapping when I need to let go of an emotion. It is quick, and easy.
Tap along this EFT video with Brad Yates to let go of emotional pain:
I acknowledge your presence dear angel…yes you, the one who is reading.
Much love to you,
