Well, I'd Like to Think So...

...I think we're all fundamentally nice;  all good people.  That's why we're here, right?

There is good in everyone. Past experiences change people, they start to act cynical, mean, and lose whatever it was that was good in them. I have had my ups and downs in my life, but in the end I am still a nice guy. And for you to say that you don't believe that anyone who acts nice really is, is kind of sad. I hope you find it in yourself to trust again.

Ok. You're right. We're all just *** holes in disguise. It's very easy to be cynical. In fact it takes very little effort which is why everyone does it, I guess. Thanks for setting me straight. Damn. To think there was a bit of good in everyone - how naive I am!

I would normally agree with you, but I have just figured out that for the longest time my sweet and loving exterior was just a facade, and I have trouble believing anyone who acts nice is. There is only one nice person I have ever met, and her name is Karina. She saved my life once...

Here, meaning, doing this experience project thing. Whatever. Dig a little deeper, Dodo. I guess maybe I was to generalizing saying "all". Original sin doctrine? Seriously...

well, I think that the vast majority of us have it in us to do good. I don't think that necessarily makes us all nice, nor necessarily explains why we're here though? (Not that I subscribe to Original Sin style doctrines, which would curiously say the *opposite*)
