    Kindness

    Being kind is just something that is natural for me. My mama brought me up to be nice gal... and I intend to keep it that way. When people call our house, and I answer, they even make comments to my mother about how polite I am over the phone. I hold the doors open for...

    Yes, I try to, I do my best,

    but most of the time I get ignored at best, not to mention worst scenario... It seems like people don't care about anything anymore, except for themselves. I am still kind, but their attitude is ruining me, you know, if you give out warmth and receive nothing back, you will...

    Anyone And Everyone

    Anyone who is nice to me I will be kind back and if anyone ever needed something from me I would try my best to help them but if someone is going to disrespect me then I am not going to respect them. That is just how I am.

    I try. I do. But girls

    who sell themselves for money really make me mad. When I hear..."I don't wear undies so I can bend over and men buy me things"... I lost it.

    I know that you cannot please everybody,

    so it's annoying to think that pretty much everybody wants to be pleased.

    Over the time I realized

    that trying to be kind and good to everyone, does not make them respect you.

    I don't realy can say

    why I am this way. I was always nice, polite and kind to everyone I met. So was I raised I guess and so is my character. Plus seeing so many rude and agressive people I realy think there should be more kind people around so I stay as that what I am

    ... but sometimes it doesn't work out too well.

    People like to walk all over me and abuse my kindness and generosity. They take advantage of me and I end up being friendless and hopeless. I just wish there was some way I could be nice and have friends who don't use me at the same time...

    Why are people on EP sensitive?

    Getting offended so easily, over 1 thing, its so amusing seeing them fret over the most whimsical thing. Like, relax. Also what's up with the online ego's?

    Maybe the reason people are always so angry and mean is because nobody is nice to them.

    My religion is kindness.

    Some people believe that to be moral you have to be religious and that is the farthest thing from true. I don't claim to be any religion, I just strive to be a good person. Love and kindness is so essential, but it's what the world lacks the most. I may not grow up to do much...

    I do make the effort to be kind to others.

    I am often much more kind than I should be to those that are not so kind. But, I have limits and kindness should not give anyone the impression that I am a complete pushover.

    I tried, but I think not everyone deserves my

    kindness. Some people misinterpret kindness as being indefinite and that leaves us being abuse and hurt. It's okay to be kind but to an extent.

    You don't need a reason to help people.

    A good way to uplift one's spirit is to uplift others. Random little acts of kindness bring big reward. It's that rush, a feeling of empowerment.
