Being nice hurts.

True story. I apologize for horrible paint.

INB4 poor you.

Hello Funnyjunk, let me
share you a story.
I know you came here to
laugh, so did I, but today I am
sharing a story that I had
which really troubled me.
lam generally a nice guy, but I
can not stand watching people
bullying someone half their
We had a kid in our class,
younger than everyone,
shorter than everyone, still
hasn' t hit puberty at that
time, was being bullied. Me
being his knight in shining
armor I stood up for him.
This went on for a full year, he
was my mate, my buddy, I
always drove him back home,
all the good stuff. Fast forward
to the end of the year. He told
me he is travelling for a year.
He went away for a whole year.
Fastforward again, one year
after he left, he came back. I
barely recognized him. He was
much taller than me, he wasn' t
the same, either.
He had a whole different gang
and group he hung out with.
Some of them were the guys
who used to bully him as he
was a young kid. I didn' t like
any of them, I tried to talk to
him and hang out, but he was
one of them now, not my issue.
Fast forward to yesterday, I saw
him hanging out with his gang,
and one of them insulted me. I
did what I always did, laugh and
walk away. But then I heard him
insult me, saying secrets I had
and told him, threw our
friendship away for a good
laugh.
I laughed and walked away. As I
always do, the air was cold as I
was walking away, and the wind
was blowing on my face. Then I
felt two warm tears run down
my face. They felt like lava and
it burned inside me deep down.
I never wanted anything in
return for standing up to him,
but at least he did not have to
be like that to me. And what
sucks worse is that he used to
be like this and he can' t relate
because he is too busy having
fun with his 'mates.'
In conclusion.
Do not be nice in a world that
treats nice people like **** . Life
is hard and you should let
people learn it on their own.

Stop being a bitch, Batman saved everyone in Gotham like 3 times and they all hate him and want him dead. You just have one little cry-baby bitch boy who betrayed you. In the end Batman ended up getting a hot wife, and you know he banged the **** out of her like everywhere in ******* Paris and text'd pics to Alfreds old ass. So what I am trying to say is, do u evn lft fagit?

No. No. As much no as one man could possibly say. Suck it up. Continue to be nice. Fight back if nesscessary, but always refrain from stooping to that level of asshole.

So I shouldn't be nice in a world where people are dicks to everyone?
Just because you were nice to someone and they were an asshole to you doesn't mean you should stop being nice to people, otherwise you're just the same as him.

Or you could keep being nice and try to be the example for the change you want to see in this world. Yeah it's naive. Yeah it's probably pointless. But I'd rather live like that than become one of those people who don't care about others.

You missed your own point. You don't help people because they're going to be your friend afterwards, or because they are going to back you up if roles are reversed. Yo help them out because that's what you do. And if they don't return it, and they start acting out against you, that's on them. You still help out people. You help because it's what you're supposed to do, and because that's the kind of person you are.

The world needs the selfless. Don't give up.

Life sucks, doesn't mean you have to stop being nice, though. You demonstrated a lot more self-control than I would have in that situation...

I don't care what happens. I am always the nice guy. **** like this does happen and it doesn't mean you should stop being the nice guy. The world needs more people like you who are there for others no matter what happens in the long run. People change for better or for worse. That's life, gotta deal with it. Smile and move on.

in conclusion, some people are assholes
others aren't
try to be nice to everyone, those who don't give back that respect, screw them

I used to get bullied non-stop back in school, this guy and his friends that used to bully me sent me to hospital because he broke my arm and the school didn't touch them(This was in South Africa, where I live). I never did anything to him, ever, I was just the quiet kid. He would always tell me, "You should **** off from here, before bad things happen" (Afrikaans was his first language, making his English below par). I always tried to laugh it off, like a panzy Then another guy joined the school and we got along, the bullying then extended to both of us. This continued before we finally matriculated (graduated). Before that I had started gyming and eating right, i went from 80kg to 106kg in 2 years (I know it wouldnt just be muscle growth). Me and my friend went our separate ways until I saw him being threatened by the same bully with a new group of scummy looking friends at a reunion an old friend of mine had at his house, they had not seen how big I had gotten before. So i walked up behind them, he was then the exact same size he had been in high school. I gave the back of his head a small slap to really get him riled up as he turned around. It was pretty funny, because he first looked straight into my chest, expecting someone smaller or the same size as him. Then he turned his head up in shock, he looked at me for a few seconds before he recognised him, and stayed quiet, before I told him "You should **** off from here", it looked like he was about to say something, but as he opened his mouth I said,"Before bad things happen.". He then left in his car with his friends a few minutes later. I never saw him again. I caught up with my friend and now we see each other on a regular basis.

Basically what Im trying to say is, people like the ones you dealt with are scum. Never, ever let those kinds of people, especially ones who turn on you when you've only treated them with kindness, give you **** . People say there's no need for violence.

Sometimes there is.

People like that usually fail after highschool anyway.

NO. I refuse it. You will go down, seeing that YOU are a nice person. YOU are NOT alone. YOU are the shining light in a world of darkness, just use that light to find the other light switches.

No. Be nice to people. When they stab you in the back, think that YOU pulled them out of the ****** pit they were in, and that you won't descend to their level.

you should have just took a dump on his chest when he was small and create your dominance as the alpha male.
