The thing about doing the right thing is that, while it's important, it's also important to do what's right for you, first. You know that whole fasten your oxygen mask before helping others, that applies here, too. I have learned that I can't do everything for everyone. I refuse to sacrifice some of myself and my family for others, no matter who they are. There are just some people that are in your life that you can't keep doing the right thing for when all it does is hurt you or your family.
But, we always try. Trying to do the right thing is important. When we can do something, we do. It's just as important for my children to see us do the right thing with people who never do a thing for us. I refuse to let it hurt my family, but I also use it as a teachable moment.
So, we'll keep doing the right thing. Our little family, we have the right stuff, even when other people don't.
