My whole life

I was brought up to be honest and do the right things. But it has gotten me no where and only brought heartache into my life. Maybe I'm just stupid but I feel I tried my very best to do the right things to take care of my family, work hard and sacrifice my whole existence to make sure they were well taken care of. Now I am reavalulating these thoughts because it gets you no where and no one seems to really care and no one else has the same values as my mom instilled in me. Damn it's a sad ass world we live in. Some lady can hang outside with her baby smoking pot and partying til 1am in the morning and no says anything about it yet I'm being set up to be some horrible person cause I complain about wrong doings and to try to set things right in a horrific organization only concerned about the bottem line and money. I'm tired of doing the right things ! Tired of being shit on ! Maybe I won't care about doing the right thing things anymore ! I know this makes no sense to anyone not knowing the whole story but it does to me. Tired ! So bloody tired ! Why is the world so unjust ?

It's clear to many people that the world has gone mad. Thought I was the only one until I mentioned it to others. Morals, standards an common sense are now out of style. Just do what's best for you without being unpleasant about it. These days what's right and wrong are often inversed. You can't understand something that doesn't make sense.

It might seem like “no one else” cares about the type of things that you do, but obviously that’s not true. Lots of people have values. Maybe you just don’t know what they’re really feeling or maybe the people you’ve surrounded yourself with aren’t like you. But there’s lots of good people in the world. I understand about not wanting to stick your neck out anymore though. I got to that point too in my own career. Sometimes it’s the person who’s willing to stick their neck out to try to change things for the better that’s the first to get cut. I finally just gave up fighting on behalf of other people because they rarely appreciated it and it was me who got branded as a troublemaker.

If you are looking for an Accountant in the Sky who keeps track of all the nice things you do and rewards you for them, pick a god. Otherwise, get used to the idea that people who give more than they take tend to live happier lives. But there are no guarantees. Especially if you live in a kind of emotional economy where a nice gesture gets met with another one immediately.

Take you own inventory. Stop playing judgement police.

It's not about keeping score on any good deeds done. Because I was taught you just help and would never expect anything in return because that's a horrible reason to do a good thing.
It's about how messed up this world is and only the shady seem to get ahead. Nothing is ever as it appears to be anymore.
I miss my rose colored glasses !
