I'm scared to do nice things for people.

The subject says it all.

I'm scared to do nice things for people.

I wish this wasn't true. I haven't always been this way.

I have found in my life that one of the most sincere pleasures I can experience is knowing that I've made someone else's life easier.

I'm scared to do that now. Everything I do is misinterpreted. Everything I do is seen as an attempt to control to have things 'my way'. I don't even know what my way is anymore

Even as this post will be.

Don't be put off, there are people out there that genuinely appreciate a kind act.

Jyll i'm sorry you feel that way,people genuainly do appriciate nice things it's just that sometimes they are bad at showing their apreaciation or they come across as ungratefully simpley because they are embarrsed or don't know how to react to such a none selfish gesture. Don't change the really amazing part of you that makes you the jyll your friends and family love. Say true to what you beleive is the right thing to do and forget those who may seem negative towards you! *Hugs* helen xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I'm sure not everyone thinks like that. I am sure people do appreciate nice things done for them.
I know I like all the nice things you have done for me. like making me tea, taking me to the apple store, buying my laptop, going shopping, and many other things lots bigger and smaller than these.
you do so many wonderfull things for other people, I just hope you keep doing them, even if it is just small things.

You should never be scared to do nice things for people. If people do not appreciate your efforts then that is not your problem or fault, it is theirs! Just be yourself and don't go changing for others :)

Take care.

God I know what you mean. I'm sick and tired of things I've done that had good intentions being taken negatively - ie, a suggestion that was meant to be helpful taken as a criticism of what they were going to do instead of just being a good idea offered with the intention of helping. It's been driving me crazy lately. I'm beginning to think I just have surrounded myself with the wrong people - that is, people who jump to the wrong conclusion about me all the time neither think much of me, like me a lot, or know me well.

*nods* You do indeed know what I mean.

I can't imaging you doing something that's not nice... for you or for anyone else. You're one of the nicest, kindest, gentlest people I know.

You offered to send me Altoids (although I have yet to take you up on your kind offer, as I will formulate some form of recompense. Marmite, perhaps?). How can that be interpreted negatively? ;-)

You brought me cakes, thousands of miles, exotic and foreign, and (nominally) made by your own fair hands. I'm grateful, I suspect you of nothing, other than being a lovely person.
