I might catch a lot of heat for this post, but it really needs to be said. Being a nice guy is sometimes very counterproductive when applied to our society. I am so tired of so many nice people I know getting the worse end of the deal over and over.
I am a nice guy by nature, but I can turn the other way really quickly. I had to learn how because I kept on getting taken advantage of. What bothers me the most is when people take nice for weak.
One of my good friends is getting literally abused a work. Chastised in front of clients (I have experienced that in the past), taken for granted (even though he is the biggest biller for the company), and worse of all being made the scape goat (the main reason why I left the last company I was with.)
The other situation is how nice guys have such a hard time dating. The good, responsible guys are constantly being overlooked for the bad boys. If you are nice and accommodating you are thought of as a wimp, but if you are a jerk woman just come in droves. And it is not just maturity, I`ve had friend of all ages being ignored just because they are just too nice. The flip side of that is that many woman are still in abusive relationships and make excuses for those people that mistreat them.
So is this world for the jerks? Are they the ones that are the leaders of the pack and deserve the attention? What do you guys think?
