Being a better person

Are there specific things that you have in your life that you try and focus on and improve in order to be better to yourself and those around you?

It seems as though Spring is the time of year when people evaluate themselves, make changes, etc. A 'Correction of Errors' period, as it were.

For me right now: learning to be more patient/understanding...

I'm in the process of realizing Craptor fans are people too ... they just know very little about basketball ... and what a good basketball team is

I always try my best to be a good person. My Mommy and Daddy raised me well.:D....I'm sure sometimes I can be a bit of a twaught, but for the most part I treat others with full respect....and I am also a great believer in Karma.....if you have the intent to disrespect or have negative intentions on someone, it will come right back your way.

Peace,Maxine

I try and treat others as I would like to be treated. I'm usually nice to everyone, and don't get pissed off very easily.

One thing I do have to work on is not taking shit so seriously and spending more time with family/friends

oh and i wanna take better care of myself.

I think the mark of a 'good person' is that they know they're not, but they still try to amend it. For example, most (if not all) people are really selfish. But the 'good person' will recognize that, and will really try to not be. So through effort and time, they'll work hard tobecome 'good person'. Though they're still selfish (they still want (for example) the last piece of pizza, but they'll conciously decide to let another have it) they are a good person, because they're conciously moving past that. That was prolly really confusing...sorry:rolleyes:

Every summer I vow to develop good financial habits, starting with my summer job. This is my last summer job before I graduate, this year I really need to create some good habits before getting a FT job next year!

Every year at this time I also vow to take better care of myself - sleep a decent amount, work out more, eat better, party sober. We'll see....

Trying to be a bit less edgy and trying not to worry about things that are irrelevant to my current life and forget about things that happened in the past. Also i want to be a better morning person. I h8 being woken up.

I think it will be a lifelong struggle.

Whoa, that's a good one.

I'm a horrible raging bitch in the morning. And I don't even mean to be.

No room for improvement in me! :D

(no really! I'm so self absorbed and egomaniacal I don't have time to become a decent human being) :D

i'm trying to be less bossy;)

as others have mentioned, i try and treat others as i wish to be treated. putting goodness out there, will only eventually bring goodness back to you.

i like to think (and hope!!) that nice people do eventually finish first!!

Trying to be less bossy is also at the top of my list.

I find that a lot of the time I find it difficult to treat people the way that they need to be because I DO treat them the way that I would treat myself, because I am very blunt and honest with myself (or try to be), which when communicating with others can be translated as harsh or abrasive.

ha, you said twaught. :D




Seriously though I now have made a personal rule that I will help push people's cars if they are themselves pushing it somewhere for repairs, to get it out a snow bank etc. it makes me feel great afterwards because its a good deed and its really hard exersise especially when they leave the fu*king parking brake on! grrrr. oh that one guy..... grrrr. man he owes me!

For some reason, that made me laugh... something to do with the "t" missing from "crutches"... the "t" looks sort of like a crutch, you see, and I thought maybe you stole that too...

Drugs are bad, m'kay?

I think the best thing to do to be a better person is to try and understand opposite viewpoints of other people. By really getting to know people and their backgrounds it is easier to understand why some people don't always agree with you. I think that it is so important in relating cause then you won't initially judge another person if you know the larger picture. Listening and understanding is the key to respect.

Exactly.

Asking questions is good too.

Imagine how much more tolerant this world would be if we all spoke half as much as we listened?

Although if I do the math right, that would eventually lead everyone to not ever say anything...
 

Straight Up D Shit

TRIBE Member
Every spring I try to be a kinder, gentler D, but by the end of the summer, I end up a complete bitch...

so I decided I am the Karma messenger...if I'm being mean to someone, it must be because they've been bad in their former life.

Now, I am happy 'cause I have a sense of purpose.

peace out

Something I've been focusing on others during the past year is helping friends get through their tough times.
