I cannot understand why people have to be anything other than nice, friendly and honest. Why waste negative draining emotions making others miserable.
How hard is it to be nice? To NOT talk about others behind their backs, or secret smirks to others in the know or messaging them and then smirking, when whomever you are talking about is blatantly aware is just as nasty as the IN YOUR FACE nasty. Whereas smiling, asking others how they are and taking the time to listen to the answer, to show a caring side, not only makes others feel needed, it makes you feel good to be that nice.
