    Politeness Is Kindness

    I for one am fed up with the decline of good manners and the fact that so many people feel it is cool to be rude. After all it is simple to be polite in that politeness can be so easily defined as doing nothing to hurt other people. Why then do we put up with so much bad language...

    High School students constantly judged

    and made fun of an older woman who may have been disabled. It angered me so much. This poor woman was enjoying her journey on the bus and made some random comments (as if she wasn't fully aware she was on the bus) and a group of girls constantly laughed and judged her. I had to...

    I go to this school called Scotland high school

    and most of the people I know there are the most rude , inconsiderate , thoughtless, unoriginal people I've ever met. It's crazy. I had problems where I was but here everything's just so backwards it's strange. I hate it. I can't wait to get out of here.

    I have noticed that a lot of rude people on

    here are middle aged men. I'm not trying to say that all men that age are bad, I know a lot of awesome ones on here, but I have also had most of my bad encounters on here with them being rude. Is anyone else having the same issue?

    I met someone on EP that I really liked

    and we talked everyday. I thought they had liked me too. At first it was great, then after awhile they were distant. I know that being busier was part of it, but it felt like it was more. Like they didn't want to talk to me anymore. In the middle of conversations, they would...

    Everytime I'm happy or making progress,

    someone always tries to drag me down and blame me for their misery. I'm going to watch and wait for every worthless person in my life to be removed. I'm trusting that every person who wants to tear me down will be removed by the grace of God.

    My Personal Rant

    Some people can't accept people's happiness. It's just a matter of how simply they are trying to bring down others in order to make them feel superior. I don't know why they are insecure or having self-esteem issues but I hated it whenever a person was judged and criticized...

    we're stupid just because we are young. All because someone is old, that doesn't mean they're smart. Age doesn't define maturity and intelligence.

    Without Even A Thought

    For another person, people are rude and cruel and thoughtless. I wish that people did think before they act but most people don't. It seems like most people don't really care how their words or actions will effect others. I am really sick of it. This world could be a much nicer...

    lives and the world around me. Yes I'm being selfish but I believe we all benefit. Fix your life and keep your **** clean and we all benefit. The world benefits. Just thinking about the state of the hometown I'm from. Wishing I had the time and resources to rehabilitate it.
