Being too much of anything is not good. I know some people that are too nice, too giving and it saddens me sometimes that they are like that because they lose everything because they always think of others first. Some people are even taking advantage of their kindness and abuse it.

I couldn't agree with you more! A few of my friends are a lot like this. They give and when it comes time to be strong and aggresive and take what they know is their's in the end it is all pulled from beneath them... Only advice I can see mattering "is every so often thinking of me matters!!!" all of us should think this way once in a while. just once in a while though... a lot are extreme on the selfish side too!!

I agree with you, as people comes to know that you are kind they try to exploit you.

Yes, it is really sad, it would've been better if there would be more people who are too nice, but now there are more people that are too bad. Thank for your response.

Isn't part of being nice not allowing people to take advantage of you??? Being nice is giving people what they truly need, not just what they want. By that definition, one can never be too nice.

I never thought of it that way. Thank you for sharing your opinion. Some people just don't know about that definition though. I wonder what they are called then.

Sigh, unfortunately, people who go all the way to be nice to people get taken advantage of. I am a really nice person ever since I was a kid. But as time went by, it's annoying that I think of other people and what they give in return is taking advantage and being a pain in the bottom. Keeping this in mind, I am still nice to other people but I will fight for my right if anyone tries to take advantage in any way. I feel that I've become more "evil" but I know I need to be more tough because people can just be too much. This world is just full of selfish people and there's only a few left who are kind hearted.

Yes, people need to be more tough too since it is a tough world. I am nice too- but not that nice, I set my limits. I am really thankful that even though there are only a few people who are really kindhearted, some of them are my friends.

I know people that do so much for others they can't even do for themselves. A lady I work with supports her son and his family when those young people should be working and taking care of themselves. Some people will keep demanding more and more from those they're taking advantage of.

yes, it is really sad.. but people who are too good and helping others all the time is not really helping them, becasue they are teaching them to be more dependent and can't stand on their own..
