    I try to be kind to everyone,

    when people hate or bully others it encourages me to be more accepting and compassionate towards others. No one wants to be treated this way, we all aim towards acceptance and love. Just because people around you suck, doesn't mean you have to act the same way, be the kind...

    .. You stopped making nagative judgmental assumption about people you encounter? Let today be the day ... You look for the good in everyone you met and respect their journey." -Steve Maraboli, life , the Truth, and Being Free

    "Of course not. I can't hate you ever.

    A tongue has no bones

    but it's really strong enough to break a heart. It only takes a few seconds to hurt someone but sometimes it takes years to repair the damage.

    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.

    I don't see a reason to be mean to people.

    If someone is rude or mean to me I just don't have anything to do with 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 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.

    When I was younger, I admired intelligent minds.

    Now that I am older, I prefer kind hearts. If you can be anything, BE KIND.

    The trouble is that sometimes in trying to be

    kind I just hurt them more in the long run. And worst thing is I know that that is what is going to happen I just can't bring myself to do the right thing first time and eventually they end up more hurt in the long run... Like this guy asked me out. But he was a really good...

    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?

    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

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