Each day holds good and bad. What counts is how you handle each situation that comes along. You get rewarded for the good you have done for others. You can also be punished for making negatives comments unwarranted for someone asking you do to something. Be nice toward others or be mean and nasty. Everyone has their mind set how they want to treat others, no matter the skin color. Alot of people don't care about the consequences to treating others like dirt and that they are so much better than everyone else. What a lot of people need to realiz e is that everyone is the same no matter they skin color. I treat everyone with respect and with kindness. For those who have called me bad names making nasty unnessary comments designed to hurt others, look in the mirror before you say nasty things to anyone becaues you are insecure. Keep your nasty negative insecure comments to yourself because your only talking about yourself each time you open your mouth.

I disagree with some of what you said. Not everyone chooses to be mean. Certain circumstances might change the attitude of a person. Not all bad comments are unnecessary. You seem to exemplify the extremity of this but that isn't always the case. For instance, criticism is created from negative commentary. Criticism can be constructive or destructive. It just determines how you look at it.

Criticism is taken how anyone chooses. When you encounter someone you don't want to talk to because of your first encounter and you say no, then they really need to be quiet and walk away. You should never say anything to anyone unless they ask you for advice. Topo many people feel the need to say things when they are not asked. The only way I give advice is when someone asks. Not because I am rude or ignorant like a lot of people. I know I should not go by a first meeting. But is someone is not nice to me because they saw fit to break a rule, then they can find somoeone who will give them a second chance.

You meet someone, and they treat you with disrespect when you do nothing wrong, you can give them a second chance. I don't. I am nice but if you are not nice in the forst encounter and then you think you stand a chance of going out with the one your being mean to, think twice. To me, the jerk only wants one thing. I told him I am not interested and that I am seeing someone and he forced me to take his phone number. He has a major problem with anyone saying no to him for any reason!

Indeed there are just going to be a potential for a lot of great things right in life. A great deal of surprises to say the very least. You have to give everyone an opportunity to prove themselves for sure. Granted, there are times where people take that chance and really just stamp right over it unfortunately. But we just have to go with it. Life is just something that is just really grand. There are just many times where life in general is just going to be a great smile right on our face. There are times where we are going to have many thoughts. And not really all of those thoughts are going to be among the most polite things to really say to say the very least. There are a lot of times where our words are going to lead to either good things or bad things.

Hi desertrose, You are right indeed, People should respect each other. And about the skin color, well, i think that it doesn't matter what your skin color is. As long as you are a nice person. Why would they call you bad names? sorry to hear that. I Hope that this will resolve soon.

Totally agree with you on this pal. It's nice to be careful with our words and how we treat others and more often than not, we expect them to do the same. But, if things go the other way, it's always best to let nasty things slip away and pretend those didn't happen, and just move on.

i believe that life is an echo. so whatever you give life will give it back to you. so those people talking bad about someone or treating someone badly will get it back to them not just once but many many times. so always smile, use kind words and always treat everyone kindly even if they are not.

Hello Desertrose, Of course life is full of surprises. I always beleive that earth is round and you never know whom we feel are worthless for us can be worthful next time we meet him/her. Its right we should respect everyone and should not differentiate with people on the name of color,caste,religion.

Hi desertrose, you are so right in your post...So many people have no conscept of knowing how other feel...They just open their mouths and say thing with no regards.. I am a very temperamental person but I am a very nice towards people..I try so hard to respect people because I want to be\ respected... A lot of people think they can say and do whatever they want to others and its ok...I believe in the Golden Rule,,,,"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you"..its not a difficult task to be nice and respect other... The world is no flat, you don't walk to the end and fall off, you bump a wall and have to go right or left...on our way back around we will meet those same people we have mistreated.. Be careful of the bridges you burn or damage....

Yes try to deal and treat others, as you like to treat you by. If you treat everyone with respect and kindness, Make sure that you will receive the same treatment.

Yes life is totally full of surprises.Each day is unique nothing is stable.I myself take each day as it comes, taking everyday one by one.Our life nothing but how we perceive things in our mind i.e. what we think is projected in our life.At last life is how we make it.
