    It Never Pays

    people just take what they can from you and step on your face to get higher. Nice people only get walked on. I should start being mean all the time, tell people off and act like jerks to them. I always wanted to fit in anyway and its what everyone else does

    Tired Of It All

    Why do the nice people get taken for granted. I mean I am only 23, but I will do anything and everything for people. I am the type of guy that gives money to the less fortunate, donates to charities, listen to all of my friends rants, and lets anyone and everyone into me heart...

    No More Miss's Nice Girl!

    I have always been the "therapist" in my group of friends, and i am totally up for being the go to person when someone needs help. But two friends have ruined their chance to talk to me if they need it. They complain 24/7, about every single thing! They also make their life...

    Yes,

    I agree with the person who says it never pays because it ******* doesn't. Tell me, name one nice person who ended up living a good life...It's the greedy, selfish people who get whatever they want. They know how to use people like us. They know how to suck up to others. They are...

    It's Getting Old

    It's getting old. People mistake my kindness for weakness, a badge that gives the green light for them to use me like a doormat......and get away with it. I'm getting reeeeaaally sick of putting myself out there to try and help others only to be taken advantage of and kicked to...

    No More!

    I've always been a purist when it comes to my relationships and believed that being genuinely nice and not playing games with others was the way to do. This is especially true in my "romantic" relationships: I attract users and abusers like bees to honey. They know they can do...

    Sometimes I think about how much my life would

    improve if I became more of a cold hearted b****. I often fantasize about how nice it would be to say "no" more than I did "yes", or how good it would feel to tell someone I cannot stand that they're a piece of s*** and not feel bad about it. How less stressful my life would...

    Woud It Be So Horrible

    Really would it be that bad if i joined the masses. The people who dont care about anyone but themselves. The people with the ability to use people for their own gain. It seems like it would be easier to not care. At least I could go back to watching the news and the damn stories...

    Yeah, Nice, That's Me

    If you ask people who know me to describe me in one word, the most likely answer would be "nice". I have been told sometimes I am too nice. Sometimes I wish I could be mean and say what's on my mind or tell someone off, but I can't. I would feel really horrible if I did. I have a...

    I am tired of caring

    and doing stuff for people because part of the reason deep down is I want them to need me or appreciate it and they don't. So **** them and **** it all. This is scary for me because I don't really have much else to offer.

    Way Too Nice

    I am way too nice and polite. People confuse that for being weak a lot and find out the hard way that isn't correct. I can't stop myself from being polite because that's just part of who I am but I am tired of being nice.
