Never stop being a good person, because of bad people.


July 13th - doing good makes you feel good

No one can make you feel inferior with your content.

Eleanor Roosevelt

The fact is that there are bad people in this world, but just because they are there, doesnt mean we have to be one too.  We all have a choice as to how we live.  

Being good isnt hard, but it just doesnt happen.  Its all about making the right choices.  Its about how you treat and act around other people.  Its how you live day to day life.  When were thoughtful caring and overall nice , despite our flaws, were a good person. No one is perfect but by doing our best we can be good people.  

Its nice to be important, but its more important to be nice.

John Templeton

Just because people are different doesnt mean they should be treated differently.  We should treat everyone as we would want to be treated.  However there are times when people take advantage of others.  It’s important to remember that you’re a good person and don’t deserve being treated otherwise.

Never change who you are for anyone.  Keep doing things for others out of the goodness of your heart not to please others.

The greatest lesson of life is that you are responsible for your life.

Oprah Winfrey

Humans want to change the golden rule to: DO UNTO OTHERS AS THEY DO UNTO YOU. but yes the people who are nasty to you, need love the most.
Good one

So true that there are bad people in this world, but I think there are more good ones than bad ones. Its neat to see people come together after tragedies, strangers at times, and help others. It gives me hope for the world!

That last meme is so powerful! For too long my first instinct was to retaliate. Taking the high road feels far better.

You are so right - no matter how much others are mean or ugly - doesn't mean you can be too.


being a decent person helps to make the world a better place. "No one is perfect but by doing our best we can be good people."
