That’s what you’re supposed to do. People say that when you verbalize or express what you did for someone else. It’s people’s way of dismissing your claim so you won’t receive more praise or honor due you. Maybe you’re guilty of saying it; I know I am.
Doesn’t mean people get to trivialize or dismiss your goods works. They don’t get to flip you off with a wave of their hands as though your righteous acts are worthless.
In fact, doing what you’re supposed to do is a credit to who you are in a world that doesn’t.
There’s a difference between the way something is supposed to be and the way it is. And in a world growing darker, doing what you’re supposed to do is even more valuable. So, continue to stand for truth, righteousness and justice. You’re a lighthouse, a hope, an example. Your wonderful works may never make the news and your peers may not acknowledge them, but right is always right.
