Being a good person

It's perfectly natural to not like everyone we meet. Some piss you off intentionally, some without doing anything at all and others because they're simply not a nice person. Not all people are good or have  good morals, but what is the best way to deal with these types of people?

There are two types of people in this world and I'm still trying to figure out which one I want to be! 

* There are the ones who are straight talking, they say it how it is, no sugar coating shit! You know where you stand with these people, if you're not liked then they don't give you the time of day. They are real and have a 'don't mess with me attitude' they don't forgive or forget. 

* Then there are the tolerate ones who are polite and nice. They try to be the better person, they rise above the BS and strive for the easy life. They forgive easily but don't necessarily forget, they're just good at hiding it. 

Is the second person morally wrong for not being true to themselves? or is the first causing themselves more agro for being truthful? but are they less likely to be taken advantage of in the long run?  

Which person is the better person? 

How would you rather people were with you, honest or polite? 

You can't be liked by everyone but can we all really get on, or at least pretend to?

  1. Oh, so true! There are definitely people I meet who just rub me up the wrong way. If I can I avoid as I'm rubbish at confrontation (think, uncontrollable toddler!) If I can't avoid them, I have a Mummy-look that keeps them at bay!

    1. Love this idea, we should all use our mummy looks more often. Thanks for dropping by x

  2. I think my tolerance for fake people has massively decreased over the years - I prefer honesty so you know where you stand #bigfatlinky

    1. I agree, who has time for fake people?! thank you for dropping by x

  3. Erm....I'd rather people were honest if we are not stuck in a situation where we must get along. If it's just a social thing go ahead and tell me and we can stop hanging out. If it's at work or another situation we can't escape lets just pretend and do our best. I hate confrontation and would much rather be polite and nice and avoid people than say something.


  4. I would much rather know where I am with people :)

  5. Wow. Great post and really got me thinking. I've been both people in my life. And I'm somewhere in the middle now (if that's possible) id rather people be honest and I really can't stand fake people. But I can't do drama or confrontation and in that case I'd rather people be honest but nice. Thanks for linking up with us on the #bigfatlinky hope to see you there this week
