Are you kind only to those who are kind to you?

RE: Are you kind only to those who are kind to you?
I'm pretty autonomous too. I'm not needing folks to be kind to me all the time to keep 'Me, Incorporated' running well as it is.
 The granting of a pardon is an imputation of guilt, and the acceptance a confession of it.

I'm nice to everyone that I meet, and if I don't feel that they are quite nice, I just will tell them and ignore them, or just ignore them so I don't have to see them anymore.

I'm normally good to all people. Which has caused some problem, as I've been taken advantage of from time to time. I kind of wish I was better able to put my foot down.

If someone is hateful towards me, though, it's hard to be nice to them. this is why I don't get along with my dad. He's an asshole.

Yes, by and large. I don't do the turning of other cheeks well...

Well, a big reason Jesus wanted people to turn the other cheek (and give away all their possessions) is because he thought the world was going t end very soon. Not very good ideas for long term prosperity.

Yes.
I am good with people that are good with me.
I am bad with people that are bad with me.

RE: Are you kind only to those who are kind to you?
I strongly believe in being kind to everyone, even those who are not kind to me. How often I am able to actually practice this however, is a different matter. Sometimes I succeed, other times I fail miserably. Undecided
"Of course, everyone will claim they respect someone who tries to speak the truth, but in reality, this is a rare quality. Most respect those who speak truths they agree with, and their respect for the speaking only extends as far as their realm of personal agreement. It is less common, almost to the point of becoming a saintly virtue, that someone truly respects and loves the truth seeker, even when their conclusions differ wildly."

Yea, for example...let's say you work with someone who is not very kind. Continuously. Are YOU still kind to that person?

I can get along with most anybody. Even people I don't like.

And, I'm the guy who's gonna get shot alongside the road some day because I tend not to just drive past a motorist in trouble unless they obviously have help there already.

I do that, too, except noone gets shot in this country...
