Selfishness and Karma

Was helping my neighbors at risk. I love helping people, but eventually I read their facial expressions extremely well. Even though we've different cultures, I read their minds through their expressions. Their face showed "selfishness." Even though I was well aware of their intentions, I stayed true to myself. However, universe is watching. Karma did its work right there. None of their important work was done. Many serious obstacles came and we ended up leaving. They're well aware of my generosity and kind heart. I stayed true to myself through selflessness and won over their selfish intentions. I should be happy, but I'm not because now I have to say no to them. I have keep myself detached.

I'm not going to laugh or smile on someone's misery. I know they're in deep trouble, but they did this to themselves. Although, I am happy for doing the right thing.

  • Naw! I'm the only one who actually stepped up to help them. They don't have any relatives around. In fact I was helpin them without informing my family. My father warned me that they'll keep on taking advantage of you. I don't know if I should've been listened or not, but he was right. Now, they want me to do everything for them. I feel bad for them, but at the same time I feel bad for myself as well.

  • Ask them to help you on something. Especially if it's at a local church or club or community thing. They would firstly have to make an effort and sometimes effort brings a reward of feeling like one has contributed. The second thing is that they start to connect with successful people and that can drag them out of this sorry old welfare dependant mentality they can get into.

  • That's not the case. I'm sorry, but I can't disclose some of the information, but all I'm trying to say is that I have way too much on my plate and realized it's not a good decision to help them. Eventually I am the only person they're relying on. They're living in foreign without any support since their spouse passed away after they reached here. They have my sympathy, but I can tell my kindness has seem to backfire.
