As Hated As The Selfish

I love good people; who think of others first. Who do and give and love without ever really expecting anything back. And, unfortunately, more often than not, they DON'T get anything back.

Scientists have even done studies and research on this. They found that people hate the altruistic as much as they hate the selfish, because the altruism makes their selfishness look bad. You know, instead of just being a better person, they demonize the only people on this planet who understand what life is really about..... what's really important.

It's enough to keep the cloak of despair tight around my shoulders, my soul....

oh man, I'm the one who thinks of others before myself and not that I expect anything in return but I never get the person I love to love me back :(

Yes, it's not about expecting to get a return, it's that eventually, you've given everything you have, but none are there to help you replenish..... I never notice how uneven it is until one day I collapse in a puddle of suicidal despair..... I can't seem to stop, though..... Putting others first..... I'm more miserable if I don't.

Thanks for reading! :)
