Be nice.

When I survey my drinking days, I recall many people whom my life touched casually, but whose days I troubled through my anger and sarcasm. These people are untraceable, and direct amends to them are not possible. The only amends I can make to those untraceable individuals, the only "changes for the better" I can offer, are indirect amends made to other people, whose paths briefly cross mine. Courtesy and kindness, regularly practiced, help me to live in emotional balance, at peace with myself.

Above is taken form Daily Reflections. Sometimes it can be so dam hard to be nice to everyone I bump into, sometimes it can even feel impossible. The truth is that often they don't deserve anyone being nice to them. But I try, occasionally I fall short, occasionally I get it right. The point is I keep trying to be nice, even when the other person don't deserve it.
