“Never stop being a good person just because of a few bad people.” Remember that there are still good people out in the world. Don’t let one bad person affect you.
I was talking with someone about my experiences with rude people after moving to LA. I was explaining how my attitude changed. My skin is tougher now. At the same time, I’m thinking - should I also be rude too? What’s the point of being nice to people who are rude to me? I’ll be rude back and give them their own medicine.
But I was reminded - Don’t lose yourself. Don’t change who you are. Be tough, but also have a kind heart.
So, please - be respectful. Treat everyone how you want to be treated.
