It's sad that some people misunderstand and reject kindness and throw it back in your face. It's even sadder that we must live in a world so devoid of kindness that people react this way...

@tanweerdar ,
reminds me of one of my favorite sayings:
'Bless the cup
that wants to overflow,
that the waters may flow from there
and carry the reflection of your joy
over all the world.'
(attributed to Zarathustra)

@tanweerdar that just reflects how blind they are.

I am sure that a sad life awaits them - since they are unable to see kindness for what it is.

But, as for you, I am sure that there are other people who appreciate your kindness; maybe you just haven't met them yet!

@tanweerdar it also reminds me of a proverb from the Bible:

"Do not set your pearls before swine, lest they trample on it, and then turn to attack you." (The Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 7, Verse 6).
