Being mean and miserable has a lot going for it...but the problem is...like as in karma...those comments can come back to haunt you... Ha. Let's discuss the ongoing struggle to maintain a balance of nice and nasty... meanwhile standing up for yourself and supporting the person you really are....

Nooo.
Being mean and miserable, makes you mean and miserable.

Shouldnt have to force being kind, though. If someone doesnt deserve kindness, then honesty is your best bet.

Honesty is the best way, but you can be kind as you are being honest. Unless the guy is a **! Then you just rip him a new **. Ha!

A long time ago I was labeled America's Sweetheart...Always being kind and nice to the entire world. Something I have learned is that I am am not allowed to have a God Damn bad day ever or say what is on my mind or stand up for myself...if I do then I am lectured about how I am not supposed to be like that, I am not sleeping enough or eating right or whatever.

If I say one thing out of the way to anyone who sometimes deserves it...I am the **** bad guy...again another lecture comes. I am always expected to be this illuminating ray of sparkling sunshine but the thing is...I do have bad days or times where I wanna stand up for myself but I am not supposed to show it or I am just supposed to smile and wait for karma to settle it...because the expectations are set I am to be nice and kind 24/7.

So yes to answer your question...I do get sick and tired of always being kind and nice 24/7. I don't want to be mean 24/7 either...I just get tired of having to hide how I feel when I ain't really feeling kind and nice.

I can be the other way if pushed way to far but it takes a lot to bring me to the breaking point. I just get frustrated sometimes and the day I made that comment I was really frustrated.

Yes. Either now or later. I'm more clear now when I help people... "I'm doing this not just because I love you...but also because you've always been helpful to me in the past...and I thank you for that."

Everyone has a limit. I tend to avoid the internet when I'm in a bad mood though. Or if I use it, I keep on the happy stuff (funny/cute animals or funny people, for example).

Having been in the food industry for a while. I truly hope that someday I will have the balls to walk up to a snooty, condescending, full fledged **** of a customer and say, "We gift wrapped one of our finest sharpest kitchen knives for you. Everybody here truly hopes that you simply use it to make the world a better place. Thank you for your patronage. You truly deserve this." :)
