    Am I Too Nice?

    I hate this part of me. I always try to find it but when they let me down. I'm hurt. I'm beaten up. So sometimes. I don't know should i expect or should i think the worst and just be surprised when their good comes out?

    Some Say It's My Down Fall

    I try to find the good in everyone.  Even here on EP.  I have given some people chances most never would.  And sometimes, like recently, it has turned around and bit me in the butt. But for some reason, I just can't stop.  This is what I do.  *sigh* ...

    We Are All

    Every one of us is a bit of the Divine.  I try to remember that, and seek out the Divine in those around me. Sometimes it's hard, but I keep looking.

    or find the good in people, but there have been a few times in my 29 years of military and law enforcement careers. Where I have run into truly evil and no hope for anything type people~Damn shame!

    Every

    Every person that crosses my path I can always see the good in them.   I may not like every person that crosses my path, but I never fixate on the bad in people.  I can always see their strengths, and I try to cater to those.   This is a huge reason why I wasn't...

    People get judged too quickly,

    sometimes you have to get to know someone before you really know them. Everyone's pain is not the same, it shows different on people. Some can tolerate more and hide it better.
