I'm gonna say it. PEOPLE STINK!

February 11, 2010 3:23pm CST
Not ALL people I get that, just most people, they lie, they're selfish they'll do ANYTHING to get what they want. If they feel wronged (even if they aren't)they will hurt other people to make themselves feel better. They take advantage of people, they stir things up, they will make people bad to make themselves feel good. Anyone with me? Or do you think people a good and honest? Whatever your opinion, why is it that? what made it that way and what keeps it that way?

Indeed, it is a hard lesson to learn not to pass on the pain. Blessed are the pain absorbers for they shall see their pain turned to glory and joy all the best urban

Do you really think they will?

I would have answered sooner, but I went and took a shower. People are like refrigerators. When one item goes bad, it seems like everything stinks . I think that most people are good, kind and are worth getting to know. Unfortunately it always seems to be the rotten ones who are the most visible or the most memorable. Part of that is how we think. It's easier to dwell on some one who's treated us unfairly. How many remember all day the person who was kind enough to hold the door, or do some small kindness? If we let go of the unkind things and dwell on the good things, we'd be happier. If you can figure out how to do that...let me know. I've been trying, but not very successfully .

If I figure out how,I'll write it down for you!

Back in the 70's it all started with those books like "Looking out for #1", "Be Your Own Best Friend", etc. People misunderstood the concept and that's when I started seeing the ME generation. Rude and selfish, unable to say they are sorry, and as my husband would say, a waste of skin and oxygen. Now, not all people are like that, but the generation that started this have passed this concept along to their children. No respect for anyone or anything. It's a real shame, but until we start thinking of others and relating as a kind and gentle people, this selfishness, me first attitude will continue. I agree with you 100%. Even people that preach family values of goodness and honesty are suspect. Let's hope we can teach our children and grandchildren to return to "old fashioned" values.

The people that preach are the worst!

Yes, it is extremely unfortunate that there are many people like this. In many ways, it is a vicious cycle. These people might not start out like this, but they are surrounded by people that are. Eventually, they fall into those habits of being lying and deceitful. They put others down to raise themselves up. These people make everyone else look bad by comparison. There are people that are good and honest out there but people who are not so can cause us to second guess the intentions of most people. A few bad experiences can taint our perceptions on everything. Thus it leads to many others falling into these habits as a survival method. Like I said, it is a vicious and quite distressing cycle in life.

You're right, because so many people are bad, we become suspicious of the good ones!

Sadly, I have to agree with you. A lot of people do have a vile attitude, and will be willing to cross you if it meant satisfying their own needs. Most people are selfish, and only look out for number one, but that's life, I'm afraid, and that will never change

You're right, it won't

I agree. People stink to high heaven what with trying to cause drama when there's no reason to. Why can't we all just get along?
12 Feb 10
Amen to that! Drama is the freakin word!

I feel the same as you. People sometimes stink. As an HR person, I often see the best and worst of people's behavior. With my last employer, one group of employee was my big problem. They would often invent issues, twist lies and half-truth into absolute truth, they would often go to my office to question the way I work and even went as far as the COO to raise lies. A big help to their cause was the "common law" wife of my boss when he is here. This girl is their ally to the cause. They became bolder because someone would be there to protect them. The sad truth is that one of them whom I hired turned out to be the biggest problem, she threw cuss words whenever I turn my back to her. However, there are also honest people who you can trust - but this is rare and in between. I still believe in people's goodness but I am also pessimistic because when people are thrown into situations that would show their true colours.

1 John 5:19 (New International Version) 19We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one. Do you think what this apostle wrote could have something to do with it? I think we need to be careful with people because many are out to use us and get what they can out of us. It's like a rose garden, there are a lot more thorns than roses. So we have to be cautious.

I learned a long time ago not to trust a soul, especially in today's society where we have an increase in crime and violence, layoffs among other negative things. My girlfriend has two or three friends that she would talk to on the phone, but she always has her guards up. I personally feel that it is becoming harder and harder to find even one good friend that you can put full trust in and tell anything to. Through my experiences I feel that having too much friends is asking for trouble. Jealousy is a B....

Very well said, I keep my guard up at least a little, even with my best friend! And jealousy most definitely is a b....

It takes a pretty unusual person not to lower themselves to a level that's not too nice when they've been hurt. Most of us have succumbed to our negative emotions on many occasions. Most of us regret it later. Watch out for the ones who don't!

People by nature is selfish and mostly we want our selves free. As a person, we have the ability to rationalize things to the point of manipulating the situation. Yes, as a person we can always turn things good/ bad, depending on our intention (either helping the person of pressing him more to be put down).But i think, true friends will not do that, they can't afford to hurt you and they can't afford to lie to you (true friends will choose to tell you the truth even at first, it may upset you - but reality really bites).

Well people do tend to hide their true selves form the world, but still you know everyone does this at times so it's not really bad. People are scared so they tend to hide how they really are because they wish to be accepted by others.

I just wanna say that I can't understand how some people could be so dirty and stinky. Especially, during hot days I just hate when I'm on a bus or on a train and someone just sits right next to me who stinks like hell.
