CE: ?? you know, this emoticon reminds me of how you smile. Very full. Not a half or quarter smile.
Just saw this on twitter; someone tweeted, “don’t mistake my kindness for interest”.
What’s your take?
M: I agree. People abuse kindness. They misinterpret and translate wrongly@ kindness.
M: It’s almost like a crime to be kind these days. I have tasted such treatment first hand, its terrible.
When did it become a thing of interest to be kind? You thinking, that I am kind to you because I
Need something from you. Why?
CE: Hmmmmmmm, many guys are usually culprits of this.
M: Even ladies.
CE: When a lady seems kind, many erroneously think, “ she likes me ”.
M: Shouldn’t you be glad someone is kind to you? Exactly @ your point. Very wrong@ she likes me.
SHE IS JUST BEING KIND. Captain Sir, you don’t want to know, what I have been through taking the
Route of kindness. But hey, ain’t nobody gonna make me a monster.
CE: Oh my!!!
M: I am a sweet child? thank God for keeping me that way.
CE: Good LORD.
M: Its horrible when people abuse kindness. Some even exploit you, emotionally, financially,
Physically…, even spiritually. Yes, spiritually. It’s crazy.
CE: Financially, a lot. Hmmmmmm@ spiritually. Please enlighten me.
M: For reals though!!! Please don’t take me there.
M: I agree with the tweet though. Hope that’s correct
CE: Loooool…. Yes, it is.
M: Just set your boundaries….but PLEASE NEVER STOP BEING KIND. Be kind even to those
. who do not deserve it
CE: YES!!!! I wish I could just hand you a million dollars, for saying this.
You just described my mindset on helping people.
M: You should not allow one individual turn you into what you are not. So if you are kind.….., please rock it. And be the best@ being kind.
CE: Hmmmmmmmmmmmm@ so if you are kind… please rock it. That’s a punchline,
M: Yes, rock it unapologetically.
CE: Another punchline. People!!! Dee is on fire today@ punchlines.
M: You must pay now@ people! Its mine
CE: Yes, I agree@paying
M: Thank you. You paying in cash or I send my Acct. No?
CE: Which would you like?
M: E- transfer
CE: If in any event someone tries to take advantage of my kindness, though pained,
I’ll forgive him/ her, by God’s grace. Becoming a monster is me telling God that I’m tired
Of being created in His image. He’s been so good and so God.
His rain falls both on the righteous and the wicked. So when people keep declaring,
“ I am a god…., my father is God”. This is one of the things being “god” entails.
M: Copy that.
CE: Not just to be on a high pedestal
What’s your take on it? Do you think a line should be drawn@ kindness?
Do you think it’s foolish to keep the fire of kindness alive and burning, even when you see people are out to deliberately quench the fire and kill your spirit?
Do you hold back or forge ahead in the act of kindness?
