People don’t owe you anything but respect.

I am tired of some people acting like they deserve this or that from you. Many of them will even go about shaming you in public for not helping them. Helping someone is a choice. Honestly, I have been guilty of that in the past.

I used to have this sense of entitlement. It made me bitter towards the people I presumed would help me.

Later on, I realized that everyone is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Because he smiles and never complains doesn’t mean he doesn’t go through pains.

He just learns to rock and roll with the flow. We all can do exceedingly great for ourselves when we learn to mind our own business and work hard.

God rewards the work of our hands. Save yourself the stress of hating on a person working hard and carrying his burden.

Help yourself by carrying your own burden. Everyone is going through a lot already, don’t try to add yours to them. It is not their business to help you. It is your business to help yourself.
