Lol as someone who has been one of these "good" people for a long time, it's hella hard to not get bitter. As you get older, it really becomes about allocation of energy and time.

Yeah but like…isn’t that the ultimate power move? Like, I don’t want the worst people I’ve met to have so much power over me. Frankly, they don’t deserve it.

If being a good person is making you bitter, you might want to look at what “good” means to you. It isn’t something that should leave you bitter and drained. If it is, there’s motives and/or expectations there that aren’t truly good. That’s on you to look at and be honest with yourself about.

Being a good person doesn't mean just being kind and generous. It means to be that WHILE being cautious and careful

Don’t let fear prevent you from being kind.


CaptainAksh_G t1_j72lg51 wrote

It's not fear, per se. Being cautious while being kind is good too.

Being kind with a cautious mind is important because people are willing to take advantage. You'll end up creating more problems than creating a positive mindset among others is what I'm saying.

Be kind always, but be wary of who you're being kind to


Modern_Devil t1_j748kg3 wrote

I don’t think of kindness as something where anyone can take advantage. Kindness doesn’t require an exchange. You can be kind without giving up anything and without appearing weak. You can be kind to every person the same without risking anything at all for the sake of being kind.

You should use the same caution with people that you always would. You should expect people to show you the same kindness that you show them. You should set boundaries and not tolerate disrespect. Nothing changes in this regard depending on kindness.

Bad people have changed my idea of what a good person is.

It’s not the polite smile on the sideline. It’s the angry grimace on the front line fighting for equity and Justice.

Being a nice/good person is overemphasised, people who are nice tend to be nice. What one should tell them to be is be a fair person. Fair to themselves too.

It didn’t say stop being a good person TO bad people. It says there are going to be bad people on earth regardless, but it shouldn’t change the fact that your aim should be to do good.

Who benefits from that? How ?


hamletswords t1_j73xbte wrote

People who only respond to power dynamics (most people on Earth) learn they can't walk all over you. This benefits you.

Keep in mind there are more clever and more effective ways to hit back than "eye for an eye" but that's the simplest way to stand up for yourself and it's easily understood and respected by most people.

Where does “snitches get stitches” fit in?


yoinktomyyeet t1_j75xy4t wrote

it’s a good rule to follow. you need trust between inner circles 🤷


Tahoeclown t1_j7amzce wrote

Just excusing the “bad people” in your circle. Then we expect the people in power to be different. Seems pretty naive.


yoinktomyyeet t1_j7aozro wrote

well not snitching doesn’t directly mean excusing bad people. you deal with your bad people yourself in the first place. no one wants to draw attention or be in bad blood with something else


Tahoeclown t1_j7aqw30 wrote

Well guess nobody will do anything about bad people then 🤷🏼‍♂️
