Do People Say You're Mean? And Are They Right?
Think about it
♦ Have you ever slammed the door right on someone's face?
♦ Or rolled your eyes because you felt someone was foolish?
♦ Or been insensitive to the one who really needed your help?
Chances are that we have had several situations in which we thought about ourselves first, and not the other.
We thought that we need to survive and we deserve to win and that it is all right to do what it takes to get ahead of others as long as it is what makes us happy. And this way, a lot of the time and most likely, we have been unpleasant, nasty, unkind; or simply put, mean.
It's not eternally easy to keep all interactions with everybody positive. But, it is possible to try and accept people for who they are, and not expect them to be who we want them to be.
When you help someone, you don't need to go to them, but also to your own self. We are happier people when we are nice.
What being nice does
♦ Have you ever felt good when you helped someone in need?
♦ Did you smile when a little child seemed grateful for your help?
♦ Did you feel peace when you once gave your pocket money to charity?
♦ Was it nice when you stood up for someone while others were mocking her?
