When people try to humiliate and insult you for doing a good deed, be happy! Why? Because the less honor you receive, the more you manifest love for the good deed itself.
Feel extra joy when you fulfill a good deed for which you receive no approval or honor. The merit of such good deeds is greater than when you receive honor for a good deed.
(see Rabbi Yechezkel Leventstein - Kovetz Inyanim; Rabbi Pliskin's
"Gateway to Happiness," p.106)
