    Why Do People Hit Others For Fun?

    So, I'm not sure if this story fits in this category, but I feel it sort of does. I hate it when people hit others for their birthday, for fun, or just cuz they're bored. I don't get it!!! Like this is what happens to me sometimes: Friend: Hey you (slap). I'm just like can you...

    We Are Strive And Seek Comfort

    We are have one thing in common: and that is to be accepted, I believe. It's a survival mechanism. If we are shunned, not appreciated, or rejected as a person, then our self confidence and self perception gets effected negatively. And we usually perceive ourselves how others view...

    Why Do People Give Broken Junk To Charities?

    I like to shop in op shops, charity stalls, jumble sales etc.  I think that recycling stuff we no longer need or use is a good idea.  One person's trash is another persons's treasure etc.  But many times I have purchased something in good faith only to find it is broken beyond...

    Reaching Out To Fall

    I was trying to help a friend one day, and she got really mad at me for asking. I didn't know that asking to help was offensive or anything. Also, I'm always there for people and in return they don't care about my issues. Either way, I'm going to be super nice and try to make the...

    It seems as if the world has become

    so busy and commercialized that people are caught on the "just getting by train" For the couple seconds it takes to say hi or give a smile, they've become so entrenched in what they perceive is an unfair world. They can't take the time. There seems to be a lot more something for...

    Well I guess, 'yes' is the obvious answer although I tend to treat people as they treat me,  so anyone who's rude to me will generally get the same back and I won't bother with them again, so it's not really a problem.  I would rather people be honest than pretend...

    People don't understand how important their

    Nobody care about your achievements except

    yourself. Friends are not reliable even if close friends. If you become rich ,a lot of people would be your friend. In contrast, people do not care about you. Money above all relationship.

    We Can't All Be Angels...

    I know that we can't all be good all the time. The negative things can teach the hardest lessons that we've got to learn. This is life, and sometimes it hurts. It would be nice though if we didn't have to hurt just to learn.
