I’m trying to avoid filling this particular blog post with clichés. Because I’ve always tried to treat people with kindness. But, sometimes, following the Golden Rule is a lonely path. Because not everyone shares or understands your journey (if you do follow the Golden Rule, that is). In these modern times, most people are selfish and they are out to look out for only themselves, because in this day and age, everyone jockeys for position, wanting to be first, wanting to be in pole position.
Sadly, I’ve come to the conclusion that treating everyone with kindness is not always the right thing to do. Because some people don’t deserve the kindness. Some people will take what’s freely offered without thought of giving back.
But that’s okay. Things have a way of coming back. Karma is a lovely equaliser. I see the wisdom of burning bridges. There was a reason why people built moats around their castles!
