People are changing

Is it just me or does anyone else feel the change in people. Seems people are less friendly. More territorial. Doesn't help that fact that living in the city they are building more homes and making us all live like we are a bunch of sardines, packed in a can. Then using public transportation. How crooked is that? For instance, I get on the bus and I have to pay. The driver see plenty more people wanting to get on the bus and the driver must be running late and waves them on just to get on the bus. They didn't pay. Let alone they aren't on time. Add the fact that courtesy went right out the door too. Everyone seems squished, whether it be on transporation or living area. I think that this kind of living will make people more susceptible to violence and taking drugs, whether it be off the street or prescirbed by a doctor. This living is crazy. I want to move out, but there are no jobs that pay outside of the city. Are you feeling the same way?

Change is one thing that doesn't change - it happens all the time! Not just the people, everything changes over a period of time. And I think we can't blame something body because he or she has changed. Its just the circumstances and the stage in their life that could change them. You need to realise that change is inevitable and if we don't change with time, we may loose our place in the society. This is actually a very interesting topic that you have raised. It will make people think about change! Thank you!

Right. I hear what you are saying, but when the change is not good it can damage people's out look. People need room to breathe. They need privacy and some quiet time when this doesn't happen in a person's life, you can make wrong choices. And the city can make you feel over whelmed at times.

I understand what our trying to say msmanners. Its hard to be tolerant of ignorance. The only change i see is people getting more and more ignorant! I dont want to tollerate this kind of behavior that leads to people slacking off at there jobs or the fact that they can skate on by, by not paying or simply cheating the system. Muralimullapudi you say change is one thing that doesn't change- humm help me out i think i am missing something here. Change changes all the time! That is the meaning of it. Do you think its ok for elderly folks to abuse younger people simply because its just there circumstance or life stage. I say get outta that or get the hell beaten out of you hahahaha. msmanners is truely through with other peoples manners as well as habbits.

people have changed over the years, especially for those that live in the city. things are not the way they used to be when i grew up. the saying it takes a tribe to raise a child, really applied then...your neighbors watch your children as if they were their own. but now days, with all that's going on, it's nearly impossible to watch your own...let alone someone else's ! being raised in the city, i know just how snobish, arrognant and rude people can be and it seems to have gotten worse over the yrs. but it has to be this way now. the young people didn't grow up as i did. but, in order to survive working & living in the city now days, you've got to push, shove, scratch and bite your way to get anywhere or get swallowed up & spit out, stepped on & kicked to the curb or worse. it has become a matter of survival, which is sad because we are all striving for the same things, usually! believe it or not, i made the choice as a young teen, this city living was not the life i wanted to live. there was just too much choas, noise, rude behavors from others etc. i needed the fresh air, the tree's, the wildlife etc that rural living offered. but one of my best example of the difference of city living vs counrty living is...neighbors. in the city you barely know your neighbors now days. no one lends a hand when help is needed because sometimes it can be dangerous. but in a rural area, such as the one i live in now, your neighbors are friendly and always willing to lend a hand when you need it. or another is, if your stuck on the side of the road and need help...in the city they usually just drive on by never giving you or your situation a second thought. but here, you have people stop to help you and this is done without them expecting anything in return, something that i believe is rare with city folk. and as far a job's are concerned, you'll find one in a rural area. and there are places that are rural but that are close enough to a "city" that you may be able to find a job that pays close to what your getting now but, the pace is certainly going to be slower & easier. and even if it didn't pay as much as your city paycheck, you cost of living goes down a tad depending on where it is you move to. but the quality of life, is priceless in my opinion ! besides, look what it is costing you, living in the city...your health is harmed the most with air pollution, the hurried pace, the stresses etc. so, if your needing to change your pace of life..go country ! so,with all that said....do i sense you may be needing a change in lifestyle... city vs country ? if this is true, follow your heart and just do it. if you think about it too much, you'll never leave and you'll never know what your missing. jump in feet first and you'll find yourself thinking, why didn't i do this earlier ! i certainly did and have never had any regrets ! lol stay well !
