Why Don't Some Individuals Show Others Gratitude For The Help Given To Them?
I find that some individuals in society is so selfish to the core don't they know about being appreciative anymore?
Sometimes people hate the fact they needed help.
Some people view such instances as sign of weakness or lack of intelligence. Therefore showing appreciation validates their momentary failings.
Should you point out an instance where you helped they'll say:
"I never asked you for your help." or "I didn't need your help."
My reply is:
"That's the beautiful thing about it. You didn't have to ask!"
Yes! This is true dashingscorpio. But you know what? It also has to do with the individual's heart as some individuals seemed so self centered and unappreciative with the most selfish of hearts and some look at it as it's one's duty to help them .
Yes, Some folks never outgrow an infancy mentality.
They feel "entitled" to get things from people. An infant is given food, water, and has it's soiled diaper changed without expressing thanks. Some teens see parents as maids, drivers, and ATMs.
Yes! dashingscorpio I get what you mean as some of their mentality is very wayward ,but then again parents etc need to institute that they are not ATM machines slaves etc and they should try and help themselves and if given assistance apply Thank You
In society few are not ready to accept their failure so if you help them they don't have heart to accept it because of ego. May be I was wrong but due competition fear of losing something they always want to win. As human we should be thankful to the person who help us.
Well ! ezba you call it ego I call it ignorance of the ignorant, that is why some times it's best to ignore the unappreciative ones and move on to individuals who appreciate your handlings as the gifts ," Help the needy and not the greedy! I say!
These individuals feel that others SHOULD help them. A category of such people staunchly believe that they are ENTITLED to this help. In fact, this category of individuals DEMAND & EVEN EXPECT that others should help them.
There are people who aren't appreciative of the help they receive because they contend that others are obligated to help them when requested or asked.. They further maintain that they shouldn't have to suffer when there are others who are more affluent & could easily help them lead an easier, better life. They assert that they are entitled to lead a good life & see nothing wrong at all in others giving them a hand. There are those among them who continuously demand help a/k/a handouts from others, believing that such is OWED them.
