I think I understand why good people are so rare in the world we live in today, they had had some heart-chilling experiences, they got tired of always being good Samaritans and had to throw their good personalities out the window.
I do think that we still need a lot of good people in the world, but I don’t think they should Always be good.
Here are some of the lessons always being good taught me.
We always forgive– forgiving has its own positives, you can carry on with your life without any grudge hanging over your head. You walk freely and not worry about bumping in to a person you held a grudge with for over a year now. It is a good thing to forgive, but always forgiving the same person for the same thing is not forgiving, it’s killing yourself.
We are taken for granted– when we say no, sometimes it is not taken seriously because the other person has been with you for too long to know that you will still let them get away with anything, anytime.
We are not expected to get angry or make any mistakes– anger is a good way of showing you are hurt, the only time it is bad it is when you hurt someone else from being bitterly angry. When you have a good heart, sometimes you don’t show your anger and when you decide to, it looks like you have gone crazy. Those close to you are not used to seeing you angry.
We are honest– honesty is always good. But when we don’t get it back it hurts so much. We then lose trust in other people.
We put others before ourselves– we tend to love more. We forget that loving always starts within you before you give it out. We go out of our way so we don’t upset anyone. We become afraid of hurting others while hurting ourselves in the process.
From these lessons I vowed to stay good, but not all the time!
