I am not always the kindest person, but I do often try to be. When I see that someone is struggling and I know that there is something that I can do to help, 9 times out of 10, I am going to do what I can.
Recently I had a friend who's sister passed away of breast cancer after several YEARS of fighting. Through all of the fighting, and the loss of their mother, and all of the struggles, NONE of her (the one fighting for her life) friends stepped up and really offered any help. After seeing some posts that my friend had made on Facebook, I decided I would step up and help the best that I could. We started planning a benefit, and of course everybody wanted to help out immediately...until it came down to it. Through most of the planning there was only one person helping me out. Fine. Whatever. The thing that pissed me off the most, in the beginning anyway, was that one of the people that wanted to help and was all gun-ho, backed out, and that is fine, if you don't want to help that is fine. You don't know these people, blah blah...But the way that you did it, and the timing...bitch, you ain't nothing but a do gooder and you are only going to do something if YOU can benefit from it. I have seen that already. I read your bullshit post on Facebook everyday about paying it forward, but again, you only want to pay it forward if you benefit from it. You know what, FUCK YOU! There is a special place in hell for people like you.
Throughout this process, others did step up and help, some ended up not being able to finish due to illness, and I get that. That is fine. It is what it is.
In the end, the biggest thing that pissed me off...people trying to take credit for shit they had NOTHING to fucking do it. Let it be known that I couldn't give a shit less if anybody knows that I helped someone out, but trust me when I say that I would NEVER try to take credit for ANYTHING that I did NOT do. Because I am not a do gooder, I am NOT going blast anybody, or state exactly what I am talking about...it doesn't matter in the end because I know what happened, what is right, what is wrong, what is fact and what is lies. This whole experience has made me realize that I need to think twice before helping out, and maybe 3 or 4 times about the people I let "help" me.
