I am tempted to delete my facebook profile simply because the amount of people who brag about being good people is getting ridiculous.
This morning, someone posted, “I started my day off by paying it forward. What did you do?”
I wanted to write back, “Stumbled out of bed and went straight to work. Doesn’t make me any less of a person simply because I didn’t buy coffee for the person in the car behind me, etc etc,”
Or simply, “Braggart.”
Isn’t the point of paying it forward to NOT talk about it? If you go and tell the world what a wonderful thing you did, it seems to me the only reason you did that wonderful thing was for self-validation and to make people think more of you.
Which makes me think less of you.
Do it because you WANT to, not because you can go tell everyone.
