The Ungrateful… someone who doesn’t appreciate all the things you do for him. Someone who turns his back to you when you most expect him to return your favors. Someone who eats at your table and talks behind your back, or more precisely stabs you in the back. Yes off-course you know the ungrateful because we all have one in our lives! Maybe a family member, a colleague at work, an unworthy friend, a jealous neighbor perhaps! Fortunately for me I have come across with many ungrateful people in my life, most of them used to be my friends, and some of them still are.
You might wonder why I said “fortunately for me”, well If you have asked me one year ago I would have said that there’s nothing fortunate about it, and those people never deserved to be in my life or get a piece of my affection, but now I see it differently!
I know how much it hurts and depresses you to treat someone with love and trust, but receive the vice in return. It is very easy to go with the concept an eye for an eye! someone hurts you and you hurt back, they stab you in the back and you do the same. But think how brave of you it is to know that the other is being unjust to you, yet you keep calm and proud! Think how courageous you are, when you have all the power to hurt back, yet you choose to turn the other cheek. Few, and few only choose to forgive the ungrateful, because it is a very hard choice to take. It needs someone with great self confidence and a lot of kindness and good will, which are not so much of popular traits these days! But once you take that decision, once you choose not to return the ungratefulness, you’ll experience the most spectacular energy filing your soul, a new kind of joy, you know you did the right thing. I am fortunate to witness this feeling!
The ungrateful are miserable human beings, nothing is ever enough for them. Nothing satisfies their hunger, they are blinded so they can’t see the blessings that surround them, and are trapped behind a wall of envy and greed. We ought to pity them since we are fortunate enough to witness and appreciate all the blessings that God has given us. We are able to experience happiness through the simple things in life and yet be grateful. Our souls are not empty, and vague. We know how to give thanks to God and those who deserve. Don not be sad from their behaviors, but be happy from yours. You’re the one who is ready to give, and at the same time knows how to be grateful…
