if there is one question i ask more than any other in life, it’s “why can’t people just be nice?” i’m often perplexed at how people treat others around them, regardless if they are friends, family, colleagues, or strangers. everyone out there is fighting a hard battle, everyone has baggage, and everyone just wants to be happy. i’m no saint, and i certainly don’t like everybody, but i make a conscious effort to treat people well – even those people i wish would disappear.
this week i’m grateful for people who treat others with respect. for people who understand that we’re all different, that we all have problems from time to time, and that we all deserve happiness. i’m grateful for people who understand that kind words and smiles go a long way, and that don’t get discouraged by all the dicks out there.
