I couldn't agree more! So why is it that most people I know don't do as I or any good-hearted person does by helping or trying to help others?... Isn't that what life is about= loving & helping everyone?!
In other words, dont talk to the people that only remember you when either that person has friends that are gone or ignorant to the person or to the ones that were your "friends" but would only break you down and cause your pain. If you say nothing to them... Well then they will figure out that they did something wrong.
I have employed this advice many times, and I can say that when a person is being rude or condescending in order to hurt you and you just let it roll off your back (which isn't the reaction they were hoping for), it IS in fact VERY empowering! :-)
