Sometimes I think so. We are a very aggressive species and between the nations wanting to war with other nations we have everyday people wanting to cause trouble with other everyday people.
It seems sometimes we are tearing away from the people around us rather than trying to make the effort to be cordial. I find when I make the effort to be nice, suspicion is immediately sort. I don’t think it is suspicious to be friendly but then again so many people are burnt by con artists.
Being friendly is hard particularly if you are genuine. There are so many confidence tricksters out there that use friendly as their weapon of destruction.
I think if we can work toward a happy community then the larger groups will start to realise that wanting war and trouble is not the way to live.
Let us strive for harmony and start trusting in nice.
