    I am confused though by today's events.

    .. You pay a person a heart felt compliment on their mustache, and then suddenly she won't even talk to me any more...

    But it is so difficult sometimes.

    It's easy to be nice to people who have good energy. It is not so easy with those who do not. It takes so much effort to be mindful of tone, facial expressions and body language when dealing with difficult people. I need more patience.

    I was raised to be kind to everyone.

    I understand that some people are less fortunate than others, but we are all human beings. We want to be loved and we all need different things. people may be difficult to work with but we have to learn to work together if we want to make a difference in this world.

    There is no such thing

    as a neutral relationship. Over time every relationship you get involved with often, would either advance you in life or drag you down. Chose wisely, it?s better to surround yourself with positive success minded people, as this would keep you striving for excellence always...

    No Trouble

    The elderly lady with the bleeding nose got on the bus at the same stop as I did, but she wasn’t waiting there when it arrived. She came tottering unsteadily across the carpark, one arm raised, just as we were taking off. “I am sorry to have kept you waiting...

    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.

    My 91 year old Nana has always said "They is

    nothing wrong with been nice to people" and she is totally right. I try to do at least one small thing everyday to improve someone's day, even if it is just opening the door for someone or putting change into a charity tin

    "I'm not a troublemaking student.

    . Leave me alone and go focus on the students in the first floor who really are problems and stop trying to over justify your pathetic argument here" -Is what I told the Superintendent who harassed me literally for no reason as I left the school bathroom.

    Why are there so many rude people in the world

    today? People are so judgmental. Put on a smile and ask people how they are doing? Put on a smile and open the door or just help someone out. You could really make someone's day.

    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...

    There are 1,440 minutes in a day,

    so thusly there are 1,440 opportunities to do something kind for someone. I just bought groceries for an elderly women whom I've never met...it's a really great feeling.

    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch,

    a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

    I feel like it's easy to be kind to people

    or at the very least to be polite, sensitive and if you can't do that; don't do anything at all. Let me explain I'm a firm believer in the saying if you have nothing nice to say don't say anything at all. And if I don't like someone i just ignore them. The last day or so I've...

    other. I always open doors for people, say maam and sir, and always use my manners. There’s no reason for people to be rude all the time. A little random kindness goes a long way. Besides you can make someone’s day by being kind, I know that’s what happens when people are...

    and thank all of the nice and considerate people on here who make people's lives better. People who take time out of their lives to be supportive and caring for someone else. I just feel like those people are not thanked enough, so thank you!
