Some people are immature and revengful. It's a sad truth but it actually IS a cruel world. Ever heard of the phrase "to each their own"? That's probably where it came from. I know it sounds negative and I don't want to become like my dad who was like that often so you should see the bright side of things. You should always do that no matter what anyway. Whether they don't want to share is their choice. They don't have to offer to help you because of their free will but I'm telling you as well that karma works! So look out for that.
people are selfish because they don't think about other people, these people have no feelings for others AT ALL.
