When we’re little, we’re generally taught that being mean is a bad thing, and that we should always be nice to others. Well whether you believe it or not, I only agree with being mean to a certain extent.
I try to be nice myself for the most part. I think that people deserve good treatment from me, as I’d like it back in return from them. Whether it’s a simple hi when passing by, having a smile on my face that’ll make others smile, or even just helping them when they need it are just the some of the little things, that end up being larger than you’d think. People who are nice tend to have more friends and get along with others more, as no one likes a stuck up asshole, or at least that I know of. And if karma does it’s job, you’ll eventually get the nice treatment back. Patience is a virtue, just wait for it..
At the same time, being nice all the time does have it downfalls. For one, when people catch onto you, they tend to take advantage, which is pretty fucked when you’re good to them, but whatever. They walk all over you as if you’re a doormat, expecting more from you than they can give in return. I say don’t take that shit, if you’re actually nice and try to help others, you deserve better and that should be realized.
This is where being mean comes into play. I don’t mean it as in treating others like shit for no good or apparent reason, bullying or tearing someone apart; nothing like that. That’s just being a dick, and you should get your ass beat if you’re one. But I’d define it as, just not being nice. Like as in being not so friendly, kind, helpful, or simpathetic for others.
It’s never my intent to just be mean to people, but I sure as hell won’t treat you nicely if you don’t deserve it. Some people don’t like me for a few reasons: I don’t tolerate their bullshit, stoop down to their level with drama and stupidity, and don’t kiss their ass like most would do. Now I wouldn’t call that mean, but real, so don’t get that shit confused. I ain’t gonna throw on a front for you, so if you don’t who I am walk the other way.
And I’m known for being sarcastic or a smartass, and get called mean for that. Trust me it’s not purposely meant as mean. I only joke with people that I know can handle it. If I know you’re just gonna cry or bitch about it, then I won’t. I don’t need any crybabies complaining over some humor.
So next time you call me mean, remember that. It’s never my intent to be an asshole, I actually try to be Mr. Nice Guy. But sometimes that just doesn’t fly. Like stated above, I’m a be real, and you may not like that or the truth, but that’s your problem, not mine.
All I’m saying is don’t expect me to nice when you aren’t either. You treat me good, I treat you good, simple as that, and that’s a promise. You act like a bitch, I’ll put you back in your place with me, I don’t care who you are. I won’t be disrespected, so try me. And if being honest, fair, and sticking to my values of being myself makes me the asshole, so be it.
