Wisdom from the Woods: Thoughtless People, by Jim Shock

Wisdom from the Woods” –Life lessons learned from being around thoughtless people.

Kindness becomes valueless when given to worthless people. If equivalent effort isn’t applied at both ends of a king gesture, it profits no one. Certainly, the giver gets satisfaction from doing something good, but diminishing returns over time quickly bankrupt a person’s cache of kindness. Appreciation laziness leads to empathy atrophy. Remember, act of kindness aren’t random at all. Flex your gratitude muscle. Thank someone for doing something nice for you today.
