It’s these same people who look down upon people who are now down on their luck. They prefer to tag them negative or unpleasant and put a condition on themselves that they’d only associate with people who are positive or those who are not having a bad run in their lives. So much so they mock others in such situation or don't want to have anything to do with them since they reek of negativity and remind them what they now in retrospect consider unlikeable, not realising they themselves had been in the same boat. It is sad and they ought to know that they are here now in the present as a result of all they have been through in the past. They have emerged from their hell thanks to the support of few people who never even for a minute thought of giving up on them. Who we are now is shaped by what happened to us in the past and those lessons. These lessons ought to enable us to be grounded and be thankful for the people who were with us at a time when we were down, not change us in a way we forget or disown our own. They are the true ones.
Something very beautiful happens to people when their world has fallen apart. A humility, a nobility, a higher intelligence, a transcendental freedom emerges at just the point when our knees hit the floor. It is that one moment that serves us for the rest of our lives.
