If there is one thing that Facebook is good for (or bad for, depending on your level of sarcasm) it is the memes.  Some of the most ridiculous statements and advice are peddled and shared via memes on Facebook.

This one immediately provokes two thoughts.  First, yes.  Yes, I have.  I have gone out of my way to help people and been taken advantage and treated with a lack of gratitude.  It isn't hard to find someone who has, which is my point.  Welcome to the human race.  So, why post it unless you are harboring some kind of bitterness over particular offenses?

Second, have you ever met someone who has gone out of their way to help someone in order to gain appreciation and receive gratitude in return?  Yes, yes I have.  They do nice things for you, going out of their way, and then get mad and hurt when you don't react with the appreciation they expect.  People who do this usually aren't trying to be manipulative.  They just don't know how to directly ask for love so they try to get it from you indirectly.
