Peace, Love, & A Blessing Or A Lesson.

I have always been a firm believer in "No Good Deed" from Wicked! At least to some degree. This song basically says that even when you try to do good it will somehow backfire. Sometimes I realize I try far too hard to help others and to get them to "like" me. Or simply caring too much when the other shows no sign of caring. My friends often tell me that the person on the receiving end doesn't deserve everything I am doing for them or even just the time I invest in them. Let's be honest this is more aimed at the male gender than the females, but it is true on both accounts. I care too much.

Any and all actions generate reactions. If you will, visualize a pebble dropped into water the rings generated are the reaction of the initial dropped pebble. Eventually the ripples dissipate but we never know how far they will reach or what they will hit and bounce back at us.

The moral of the story should be 'Do unto others what you would have them do unto you.'
Unfortunately, it is not always that crystal clear. Much as there is opposition in all things I would like to bring in another common saying. "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me." I am always giving people "strikes" once they hit 3 I still seem to have a hard time calling them 'out'. (Yes, I love my sports analogies- get over it.)

I have seen several times in my life come where I am letting my care for others bring me down. I invest a lot into everything I do. Go BIG or go HOME. Sorry, I am full of little sayings today. Seriously though, if the guy isn't calling you back, isn't texting you, isn't making time to see you, and isn't curious about WHO YOU ARE. Let go. If the girl who always comes to you for advice just won't listen, do what you can and then keep living. If there is one extra thing added onto your plate and you just might drop it all, say no or delegate. Take care of number one first. Stop trying to hard for the hope of potential in someone else. We CANNOT change someone else. They must first have the desire then we can help them. I can't make everyone love me... Sometimes the people we think are supposed to be in our lives are merely just lessons to learn.

Stop making things harder for yourself.
