There is a secret to happiness and it is gratitude. Happy people are grateful, ungrateful people cannot be happy. We tend to think that it is being unhappy that leads people to complain, but I have learned that it is complaining that leads to people becoming unhappy. Become grateful and you will become a happier person.

Some people are not loyal to their benefactors; they are only loyal to their needs. Once their needs change, so does

If you heal the leg of a person, do not be surprise if he will use it to run away.

 their loyalty. We see a personís true colors when we are no longer beneficial to their life. Some are so ungrateful and inconsiderate.
 Many of us donít mind doing favors but we hate being taken for granted.

We need to stop doing things for someone who only expect but do not appreciate. Ungrateful people breed negativity. No one gets any pleasure from giving to an ungrateful person; when we show appreciation, the object of our attention blossoms and flourishes.

We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude. ~Cynthia Ozick 

Toxic people demand constant attention to satisfy their high sense of entitlement and inflated ego. Let us protect our peace, remove ourselves from the space of ungrateful people. Sometimes some people donít learn to respect us until we are no longer around for them to disrespect us. Never put them first, if we always come last; never give all, if we only get half. Ungrateful people are generally impossible to please no matter how much you help them. Donít let them drag you down. Stay positive and keep moving forward.

Have you ever gone out of your way to help someone and then find out how ungrateful they really are? Why should we do most for people who are doing the least for us? The sad thing is, we try to help but still we are the bad one. Happiness will never come to those who donít appreciate what they already have. Some ungrateful people will never appreciate whatever we do for them, until we cut them off completely from our life. Sometimes people donít notice the things we do for them until we stop doing it.

Some people push us to our limits but when we finally explode and fight back, we are the mean one. I will always be grateful to all those ungrateful people in my life, because they have taught me how I donít want to be.

 Why is ingratitude so prevalent today? The gratitude and thankfulness exhibited in previous generations have all but disappeared! Why? And what can we do to make sure we are grateful?  Selfish people lose so much in life, because even when they realize they are wrong, they donít know how to ask for forgiveness nor show regrets.  We are sometimes devoted to people who will never appreciate our value, if we constantly give them the little that they do value from us, at their convenience; and at our expense.  

God grant us the serenity to accept selfish ungrateful people for who they are, and the courage not to become bitter, and the wisdom not to let it ever happen again.

As you get older and wiser, you realize that when people are given anything without having to earn it (unless they are physically or mentally utterly incapable of earning anything), they become ungrateful and lazy. They also become less happy. Dennis Prager
