The Price You Pay

The price you pay for being a good person can sometimes be very challenging, but the benefits most times out weigh the negative by a long shot. Even the most simplest expression, like getting ready to enter a building at the same time as someone else. You choose to allow them to enter first, but to no avail on their part, because they didn’t even recognize your polite inclination at all, don’t give a simple thank you.

Or you may be driving down the street and you have the right of way, but you choose to allow the other driver to turn first, as an act of kindness. I’m not going to explore the humongous situation that we all encounter, but for me, it’s not just the fact that they didn’t say thank you, or a simply wave with the hand. There’s a price we both pay, because I don’t think they got it. It is simply love, respect and kindness. So if you find yourself in this particular situation, show some love and then pay it forward, because that’s the price we should be paying.

Paying the good price and then paying it forward,
