someone once told me there was no point in being nice because people would A) take advantage of you, B)think you had ulterior motives behind it, or C) assume you're not genuine.
i believed it for a while, and still do in a way but probably just dont care as much. i spent many many years being so miserable that i treated everyone around me like shit.
it got me nowhere. Being nice doesnt exactly get me places, but at least I feel better about who I am.
However, this doesnt mean you have to be nice to everyone in the world obviously, but you get the point.
you live and you learn.
