I Always Try To Be Nice

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 6,506 People

    Sometimes I think being nice is an "open

    invite" to have people take liberties and on occasion treat you badly. All through my life I have done what is right, to treat people as I expect to be treated and OH what a surprise you get dumped on!!! I often wonder, surely there will be no more of this, but as each day...

    Yesterday I got late to school,

    but I really don't care, cause I helped a girl to get somewhere she needed to go (she doesn't live in my city) what I disliked was that her friends knew the city and they didn't help her! They were calling her stupid & dumb instead. I just didn't want to argue with them...

    I am a waitress who doesn't get tips instead I

    get paid a higher salary of 7.25 and I can be a complete *** if I chose to but I still act as kind as I possibly can. I receive ten or more dollars tip from a single table or more

    I do. Treat people with kindness

    and hopefully they will do the same in return. Simple acts of kindness go a long long way.

    Most days it feels like a chore to be nice.

    ..but I do it because I don't want to make anyone else feel as crap as I do. It's not fair. I decided to give up being nice to my older sister because she's the perfect definition of a narcissist & I can't stand being around her toxic, vindictive behaviour. So I severed all ties...

    I think I'm a nice person,

    my problem however is that I get taken for granted by the people I'm nice to. But I don't want to stop being nice because that makes me not who I am which makes me sad. HOWEVER I too am sad when I'm taken for granted. Oh sad sad world

    I always try to be nice to people.

    Sometimes it's to a fault. I give people so many chances. You really have to mess up big with me for me to get seriously angry. Sometimes I wish I wasn't so nice lol

    It doesn't cost a lot

    and it pays to be nice to everyone...even when you dont want to be. If someone gets on your nerves...Or tries to argue or is just a complete *** then being over nice I find is always the best way to handle it...they hate it and you win lol but I stiol like to be nice to nice...

    I know what you're thinking.

    ..."This smart@ss thinks he's nice???" Hear me out. If what i say (type) actually hurt someone's feelings, I would feel bad. I type what I type to try and be funny...to make someone smile who might otherwise not smile. So, it's never meant to be mean. And in person...face to...

    When you're usually always nice & respectful to

    everyone but because you happen to have a nice body and you like to show it off. You all of a sudden deserve to be insulted. Interesting.. I'll keep doing me while you hate yourself. It's all love over here anyway for you. I'll never apologize for who I am. xoxoxo

    People call me up on the phone all the time to tell me how nice I am. It's amazing. Great stuff. People try to tell me I'm not nice all the time. I know. Ridiculous. If I wasn't nice then why did I fly a bunch of sick kids in my private jet back in 1988? Would a not nice guy do...

    Of course I try to be nice to everyone,

    but I honestly think it's a mutual thing. If you respect me and are kind to me, I'll gladly do the same with you. If you treat me like a dog, like I'm worthless and stupid? Ill give it right back. That's just how I feel

    Something I learned, being "nice" is different

    than being a pushover/submissive. Pushovers finish last, something which I think the majority of us may be. Kindness, however, is a gem in each person, and you can still assert yourself while being a kind person.
