If you do everything with a good heart, without expecting anything in return…. you will be less disappointed. I was alway taught that you get what you put out. What that means is that if you put good vibes into the world, you’ll get good vibes back.
Karma is what some call it. Or like Justin Timberlake’s song……What goes around comes around. Therefore, if you do everything in your life without the expectation of getting something in return….then somewhere down the line…. good will come back to you. However, you shouldn’t do everything with the thought that ‘hey I am going do this nice thing for this person so that it will bring me good fortune.’
That is how I try to live my life. Now I am far from perfect. Way way way far from perfect. So far I can’t even see the word anymore…. But I try to do unto others as I woud want to be treated. I actually suffer from what I call superhero complex….. I want to fix everyone. I go out of my way to help everyone.. or at least I try. I have mentioned before that I have gone broke helping two seperate people. But when I know that I can help someone, I do so without saying ‘if I do this for you, whatare you going to do for me’
Now if you have this type of mindframe…..I cannot guarantee that you will never be disappointed…. Cause I have been disappointed quite a lot. But not because I did something for them…. I get disappointed because even tho I am helping them they make bad decisions that get them into more crap. Like If they text me and ask for money to pay for a bill to keep lights on for their kids or something Or food or something that I feel is a necessity and I see that they instead use that money to do something stupid like buy a new phone or get nails done. I feel used and disappointed and mad.
But I am working on it. I am working on having a good heart and by not be as gullible as I have been. There is a difference between having a good heart and a helping hand and then being gullible and being taken advantage of…..
