i don’t suppose that i’d include myself as one of those good people.

in fact, i don’t really understand how a person can be listed as ‘good’ or ‘kind’.

 

if two people saw a kitten stuck on a tree, one helped it down and the other didn’t, would that make the first person a good person and the other a bad person?

if the kitten managed to get down itself and somehow a car run over it and it’s dead, would that make the driver a bad person?

if somebody who saw the collision carried the kitten’s corpse and buried it, would that make that somebody a good person?

 

if a man was just hopelessly romantic, would that make him a good person?

if a woman killed her enemy, would that make her a bad person?

 

if a girl cursed her teacher, would that make her a bad person?

if a girl’s teacher was cursed by the girl, would that make the teacher a good person?

 

if someone did nothing but smiled to all of the human being, would that make that someone a good person?

if someone donated millions and millions of money to various charity but never smiled at all, would that make that someone a bad person?

 

if a religious person followed all of the norms and rules but never prayed, would that still make the person a good person?

if a religious person ignored the norms and rules but kept saying prayers to God, would that still make the person a bad person?

earlier this day, i got major help from the nurse when i was working on my denture patient. i then said to her:

why are you so kind, ma’am?

 

she chuckled, and answered:

because you are kind to me.

 

then when i was getting ready to go home, another nurse was mopping the floor wet. i needed to walk out of the room she was mopping, i tiptoed my best to keep the floor clean. she said:

just take it easy, step on it, i won’t mind.

 

i said:

but you already mopped it, i will give it dirt again!

 

she replied:

no, no, don’t worry, i really will not mind.

 

amazed, i spontaneously told her:

why, Miss, you’re being too nice.

 

and the answer gave me another amazed reaction.

ah, it’s just because you’re nice to me. go, step on the floor.

 

***

 

in my explanation, i don’t recall being that kind or nice so that i so deserved their help.

i didn’t bring them cakes or food or meal that often, just once or twice, and it was from me momsy.

 

i just like to hang around and talk to them and tease them.

 

or is that enough? is what i usually do enough to receive such ultimately kind reciprocation?

 

if it’s the case, so actually it’s not too hard, isn’t it, to be good, to be nice, to be kind?

 

so why is the world so gloomy and sad and awful?
