an old woman hit me (purposely) with her canew after i accidentally tripped her (but ultimately intercepted her fall and apologized sincerely).
hell yeah i was mad.
but as i was telling some people this story, i received a reaction that angered me more than the old lady.
this person tells me that this is precisely why i shouldn’t go about helping people, that it is not worth it. this person tells me that there are some who turn around and sue you for all you’ve got despite you trying to help them.
forgive me, but i think this world is cold enough. i know there are bitches and douchebags out there but, i also know there are some wonderful and kind people as well. sure, those who receive our aid may not always appreciate it and sure, sometimes they’re conniving little dickheads but what good are we doing for humanity if we become the same?
it would be a sad world if we continue this path of total self-interest.
let’s keep the respect, the manners, the kindness and the generosity.
already, we are too greedy, too vain and too selfish.
