Don't regret good deeds when you end up suffering. In every business there are negative aspects. When you do acts of kindness, realize in advance there are likely to be some unpleasant aspects and accept them.
Realize that when you help others you are helping yourself. You will find it easier to tolerate difficulties.
(Rabbi Eliyahu Meir Bloch - Shiurey Da'as, p.116; Rabbi Pliskin's Gateway to Happiness, p.254)
