When your sincerity is tested

Our sincerity is tested when we’re faced with the opportunity to contribute in kindness, while being treated with disregard or ingratitude.

But it’s not our sincerity towards others that is tested.

It is the sincerity of our convictions about what we hold true as principles to live by.

We lose the best of who we are, when we abandon it in the face of neglect from others.

When we withhold our contribution because we’re afraid that it won’t be appreciated, or repaid in kind, we diminish who we are to become like who they are.

Of course, in everything, there must be moderation.

And the moderation in this is that we must be mindful of when our selfless contribution may be enabling their selfish behaviour, or validating their ingratitude.

So give without the expectation of receiving, but don’t give to the point where you exhaust yourself while feeding the ungrateful mindset of one who feels entitled without good cause.

Moderation is key in everything that you do, except your expression of gratitude.

And sometimes, that gratitude is expressed by withholding your contribution from others because you want them to experience gratitude for what they keep taking for granted before you continue to give.

It always starts with you.
