I've Always Given Everyone Forgiveness Even When They Didn't Deserve It, But Not Anymore

Not everyone deserves to be forgiven for their actions.

I've Always Given Everyone Forgiveness Even When They Didn't Deserve It, But Not Anymore

If I had to use one word to describe myself, the first word that comes to mind is kind. My whole life, I have always been as kind as I can to people. I don't like to tell people no when they ask me for things, I always try my hardest to be kind to everyone (no matter how mad they have made me), and I've always forgiven or given someone the benefit of the doubt when they didn't deserve it. I don't like to hurt other people's feelings, even if they've done me wrong.

I've always had a big heart and I've always wanted to believe the best in people.

I just want to believe that everyone can change. I want to believe that everyone is honest. I always try to find the best in people, but the truth is not everyone has the same heart that I have. And I've finally realized that I can't be kind and forgiving to everyone that I come across. Not everyone deserves my kindness.

But once you're too forgiving to someone for too long, you realize just how problematic it can be. After years of being like this, it's beginning to feel like some people just take advantage of that kindness. It's like they know that I have a big heart and that I'll forgive everything. So they continue to do wrong because they know they'll be forgiven.

But things are about to change.

I'm not about to turn in Cruella de Vil or anything, but not everyone deserves the kindness that I have. Not everyone deserves to be forgiven for their actions, and they especially don't deserve to be forgiven for the same behavior over and over because they obviously haven't learned their lesson.

So, I made the decision to cut some people off. My kindness is reserved for those who actually deserve it. From now on, I won't be the person who just forgives and forgets everything.

It is okay to cut toxic people out of your life, no matter who they are, so take that step. Not everyone deserves the kindness that we hold.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
