We’ve all had ungrateful people in our lives. You know them, they are all around us – these people who always complain and think that we have been brought to this earth to serve them. They expect people to help them with things, but never seem to come up with the “thank you so much for helping”. They also never seem happy or satisfied with the way their life is or the people who are in it.
Behaviors of People Who Aren’t Grateful You Should Know
People who are not grateful always need help. Whether it is to watch the children, ask for help at work, or help with the bills. They always need something from someone. They are in a perpetual state of emergency that they can create themselves, either through lack of judgment or on purpose to create the drama they feed on. The most important thing is that someone who takes the time or money to help them and even then they never say “thank you”.
Some people won’t like or appreciate you no matter what you do for them. People who aren’t grateful don’t have time for you unless they need something. The point is, you never hear from them if they don’t need anything from you. You’ll never hear them say, “Hey, let me take you to lunch” or “let me help you.” If all goes well, you no longer exist in their world.
When you find out it is expected rather than appreciated, you need to stop doing things for someone. Ungrateful people will never let you forget that one time you didn’t help them. It does not matter whether it is due to a lack of time or a lack of money. They’ll keep this guilt on you until the end of time.
Not everyone has the same heart as you if you believe that everyone will do for you what you do for them. For all your help, ungrateful people will turn on you. They’ll talk behind your back. They’ll say you never help them. That they do all the work and you are the ungrateful sponge. Despite what you have done for them, they will tell their friends or other family members how terrible you are, in order to get more sympathy from people who cannot help them.
