This inspired me. Politicians who use people or people in general. The point is, do what you are good at. Even if you are terrible and even if others find you terrible. You know what, screw them. Just do what you gotta do and enjoy it. I have noticed i treat my opinions as facts, i have called in the past youtube a stink pile of shit and i have been rude and insenstive to some people. Even if you think they are dont be rude, just ignore it or just laugh to be polite.

Either way it was these slackers who inspired me. Just do your best even if you are terrible dont give up. Slack off and have a coke.

I think you should be nice. It's a good thing. It will get you taken advantage of, but at least you'll feel like your existence is more than just a hindrance to everyone else.

I feel bad when I'm disrespectful to people and I know that they feel even worse. It's lose-lose.

The exception is when they're irredeemable - sometimes being mean to those people makes me feel like the hero - even if that's not what it looks like to everyone else who sees what I say. It's still pretty shallow, I recognize that, but youtubers tend to push my buttons haha... I'm nice almost everywhere else... it's youtube that makes people mean.

I agree. I think its because i had problems some years ago. Its only now that i have shaken it off. I realise how horrible i have been for years. And yes, it feels good to be good to others. Disagreeing is ok, but respecting others opinions and their interests is a good thing also even if one doesnt like it. I have been hugely selfish and treated my opinions as fact. Like saying some youtubers are horrible for example, and although i may dislike stuff here and there its stuff that when others like it one can just be polite and laugh it off and just ignore it easily. I basically did the opposite and was very rude and that i feel sorry for.

But yes, i agree. Being good and kind always help you aswell as people because then they appreciate you more.

you can be civil and mature, while not being overly nice at the same time. It's probably not a wise decision to make a habit of being TOO nice. The world is a cruel place and people who are naive or ignorant get taken advantage of. Stay sharp and just go with the flow.

I used to be too nice of a person

Grades 4th to 11th were a nightmare for me because I was too nice of a person. Now I have a mental attack switch that'll flip on when necessary. Weird way to put it, but I'm nice 99.9% of the time.

If you want to survive in this world you have to be mean sometimes.

In other words be nice but don't let people screw you over.

I never thought you were mean in the first place.

Hey, dude. Being nice and asserting yourself are not mutually exclusive. Anyway, OP, better to do than to say. Start with those in your life, rather than Hitler...

Having opinions and being a dick are not synonymous ideals.

Don't make promises you can't keep. You would be better off "trying to be nicer." You're just setting yourself up for failure if you say you will be nice from now on because at some point someone is going to piss you off. Maybe you can take that but what happens when they find your weak spot? Maybe it's a relative or a loved one but we all have them. Just do your best.....like you said. Try really hard to be nice from now on but don't make promises that hinge on an unknowable future.

Edited: Oh and I completely 100% support your effort to become a nicer person. Good for you. The world can never have enough nice people.
