Expecting to Much

I just read something on Facebook that really does make a lot of sense, it goes like this:

"If you expect the world to be fair with you just because you're fair-your fooling yourself.  That's like expecting a lion not to eat you just because you didn't eat him."

In other words, just because you're kind and understanding to others, doesn't mean they will be kind and understanding back.  Some people are just not kind, understanding, faithful, truthful, trustworthy or even a good person. I am not speaking of anyone in general.  Just speaking about the world we live in.

It won't change me from being kind and understanding, especially to the ones I love the most but it is something powerful to remember when I am feeling "sorry" for myself for not getting back what I throw out to the universe.
