Even If You Try
As an example of this, one day I opened a door, then held it open for a lady I saw that was about to enter a store. Instead of smiling or being grateful that I opened the door ,she gave me a mean look then held on tightly to her purse. She waited until I entered the store first and then I said, I was only trying to be nice. Then she said what for, what's your motive or what are you doing that for? I just answered by saying I was raised to be a gentleman and also that I had daughters. I continued to say, that I hope one day some man in the future would open doors for my daughters or granddaughters and treat them like ladies. Then she said well honey they don't make men like you anymore and your ways are in the stone age or is the past! So you better get with it. Then one thought came to my mind, some people you can't help or be nice to even if you try. Experiencing this got me to thinking and it made me want to ask this question, why is it that good men or women and even some Christians have hard time just being nice? What's wrong with being a good, loyal, kind, giving, faithful, romantic or with giving someone a compliment? Why is it that some people won't let you be good to them or help them even if you try? These questions often make me remember what my mother used to say, You can please some of the people some of the time, but you can never please everyone all of the time. After all you can only be you and no matter what lengths you are willing to go too make it happen. You could never keep someone you love or know happy for any length of time even if you tried.
