Don’t be too kind

My brother once retorted very sharply to me, ‘kindness has a price.’I don’t remember exactly why he said that to me but those words just got stuck in my mind. Because it’s true. As much as I’d like to believe life was all rainbows and beautiful sunsets, it is not. Life sucks most of the times, people even more. Some take you for granted, some take advantage of you while some are just complete arses. However, the ones who disappoint me the most are the ones who mistake my kindness for naive-ness and walk all over me. I believe in looking for the best in people but lately I’ve found myself to be at fault for this. So, yes, you could say I’m a little naive but I’m not stupid. And it pisses me off when people think that I am, but more than that it makes me sad. I don’t say anything because I’m polite, that’s how I’ve always been but it doesn’t mean what people say/do hurts any less. You talk to a person, help them out of kindness but people don’t seem to see that anymore...
