Have you ever given your time, feelings, or money to someone, not expecting to get anything back but what you get back is a bad attitude, resentment or hate??
Not to worry…and don’t let this kind of “Payback” deter future giving from the heart.
What happens when someone does something good to someone and is treated in return bad, is that the person who receives, subconsciously feels bad and “Out of Exchange” so they turn it around and make the “giver” wrong… which makes them “right”.
It is a psychological defense mechanism that allows people to feel they deserve something when they really don’t.
So if this has happened or is happening to you, just chalk it up to the defense mechanism which is in all of us.
