Staying True To Yourself

Friday, February 10, 2012

Sometimes I think I live in an alternate universe or feel so out of place. I like doing nice things for people. It's part of my character. And I am the type of person that when I meet someone and have a connection with them, a friendship is born. But we live in such a twisted world where most people are paranoid and of the mindset that no one is nice, just to be nice. I guess that means I am a rarity. I don't know. All I know is, I get strange looks when I do something nice for someone not expecting anything in return or I hear the thing I hate the most "Oh, that's sooo sweet of you!" as if they are surprised that I would be nice to them. Makes me wonder about this world.

The one thing I have learned is that at the end of the day, you have to stay true to yourself. You have to be you because that's how true happiness is achieved. And hopefully, the rest of the world will get it and one day, a person will not look at me strangely or shocked at my good deed. They will just appreciate it for it is and hopefully pay it forward. If we all did one good deed a day and that person on the receiving end paid it forward and did their own good deed, can you just imagine how different a world this would be?

 Food for thought...
