We all feel like this at times.
Don't fret it. Tomorrow is a new day.
Hang in there.

Nope not related to that at all actually. It just seems in general people in public have became more rude and its getting worse.

Going off the thread title, being not so nice anymore will likely cause the people around you(general public) to be the same way. Since they will pick up on the attitude. Unless of course you're talking about rude drivers which is hard to control.

Having said that....


I still try to help people where I can or see a need. Like at my doctors office where I was leaving and this older lady and another lady we're trying to get the older lady into her wheelchair next to the car. I came in and helped the older lady make the transfer from the car into the wheelchair and I then wheeled her into the office. As soon as I went outside there was another exact same circumstance unfolding... I helped that lady transfer into her wheelchair and wheeled her in as well. I talked to both of those lady's the entire time... Letting them know what I was going to do and what I needed them to do...

I could tell they and the people with them greatly appreciated my help. And I overheard other people in the office who were pleasantly surprised that I did what I did..


Razor.... Let it be you and me and others and others who do what should be done. Let it be us who show others there's a better way to be in this world that seems so negative at times. Keep the bar high.... And don't let others get us down and have us lower that bar. Keep it high. And keep on digging. Treating others the way it says to in a certain book.

So you are going to join them and become part of that group?

You can only do what you can. I am nice because it is the right thing to do. Sure there comes a point in specific interactions that enough is enough, but the next person I meet gets a chance as well.

I've been sucking so much as a person I'm surprised my wife hasn't slit my throat in my sleep. I don't blame anyone for my actions, but it is hard to ignore the fact that I'm not the only one. Not by a long shot.

Yeah, me too, exactly. I try to never offend anyone, and I try to be the "adult in the room" that will give in a little bit just to keep the peace. Sadly what results out of this all too often is that people "get comfortable" with you, then think they can safely push you around or be rude, just because you won't blow up on them.

Ironically they will "respect" the mean that they fear will go postal on them.

Those who score high on agreeableness and conscientiousness can go too far and be easily taken advantage of. The later being users. They don't care about you like you care about them. All they want is their problem solved NOW! regardless of your time, money, prior plans, etc.

These users = people eaters = self-absorbed = self-centered = narcissists. Coming to their aid can result in self-harm.

Don't give up Edge. I am a firm believer of leaving the world better than I entered. I try my best to "be best". Often my wife and other think I am overly nice even if it means opening my self to danger. But I believe if we wall up completely to protect ourselves then the world becomes worse. Give but do not expect anything back. Once in a long while someone will come to me and say how I help them that one time long ago and they did not forget. That more than enough payoff to me to be nice. Your gestures do not go unnoticed.
