    Everyone Needs Someone To Look At Them Positively.

    If you don't give them a chance you never know. People don't always seem like you think.

    Things Aren't Always What You Think They Are

    I meet new people at my work. although angry and bitter, once I talk to them one on one, they do seem so much more human.  From all the experiences I have had, I try to find something good about them, even if its just having good hair.

    Benefit

    I always give the benefit of the doubt.  I'm not someone who automatically assumes that someone is being underhand or mean in some way or that they intend any harm. It gets me into hot water sometimes.  Not everyone agrees with me of course and I will often find myself...

    It Is Up to Us

    Sometimes it is harder to see the good in some people than others, but we all have good in us.  It is up to each of us to find that good.

    It Helps To Reassure Me, And Those I Encounter, That We're Striving For The Same Happiness And Well-being

    I don't think it's naive to assume that most of us who live in the normal, everyday, human world are decent, honest, kind, and caring. We want to be treated with kindness and dignity and will treat those around us the same way. A lifetime of working in customer service, and now...

    Sometimes We Gotta Look Hard

    For years I've been doing this , even for those that didn't have any . Sometimes I thought I saw good but it was confused with something else . I keep trying , though . We all have good in us , but we let the bad out too often and all the good we can do gets lost .

    Your Just 1% Nice

    Well just awhile ago, what I call my "B***H" cousin, was a total pain in the neck.  I was a laughing stock because of the embarassing story she shared when I was still young. She would often humiliate my sister and I based on our flaws our physique, attitude and behavior...
