Why must people be so mean?

I have seen so many mean and cruel answers, but I can't understand why. I know you can not read into someones mind but why does there have to be so many angry people. I almost always try to make someone happy or at least make them smile?

What is up with our society and why have we forgotten about caring, sharing and loving?

Good grief, maybe we need a reality check to try to understand and get along with one another.

    I think that people are mean because they are to selfish to respect the feelings of others. I liked what you said, it is what life is for to me to make others smile and show kindness it just shows who you are and actually I guess we will never understand someone being cruel and I myself am grateful for that.

    I think we should all make the world a better place by giving our love and compassion to others!

    Some people just don't get it! Cyber hug to ya and a smile!

    A wonderful question...but there may not be one true answer. I do know how you feel and a few points may be that, each in our own ways, we suffer over something or someone. Some people are poor. Some of us have had our heart or spirit broken for any given reason to the point your headspins like it's going to fly off. Some people may not be able to see anything but the darkness in the world around them although they may be surrounded by a sky so blue that it's blinding...something I know a little bit about We're all each our own and we all have our moments. And most people have their own way around it. When I feel anger coming on, the answer is sometimes as simple as breathing REAL deep and putting my head down and counting to ten! Remember that one? Or I'll get down on the ground with my Seeing Eye dog and remind myself how lucky I am to have him. I'm lucky to have something like that or a shoulder to lean on for a minute. But then, some people have been hurt so badly that they can't see through their sadness...and that can turn to anger in a flash. So maybe the answer for you and the rest of us is to remember at least one thing that gets you through the next time you run into someone who doesn't. Then again, I could be completely wrong! This works for me........

    I've been thinking about the same thing today. There really are a lot of angry people out there who are trying to feel better about themselves by putting someone else down. They get off on it. Some days it's hard for me to keep my perspective, like today, so I'm glad you asked the question, allowing me to detach myself from their mental disorder, which is what it really is.

    It's not about "anger", "frustration", ect....Some of us, are just aZZholes...Deal with it. And if you can't, good luck in the real world hunny. Cuz ya got another thing coming. Some people just don't like other people. Especially when they are crying the blues looking for pitty from complete strangers.

    Maybe they're just looking for attention because they don't get enough at homw or elsewhere!! Or maybe they just like seeing other people in pain. But they should just think about this one thing......"Treat people the way YOU want to be treated!!" And maybe this should knock some sense into them!! lol

    some of us have messed up backgrounds, some of us have bad days, some of us are stuck in a rut with our lives, some of us see that people have really ridiculous questions or else are just way to arrogant and egotistical that we have to say something to get them to shut up.

    Pple are mean sometimes cos they are frustrated with their own lives, or they have a huge inferiority complex, or just have mental disorders.

    You get what you pay for. If you want someone to be nice, pay a shrink. If you want jibs and jabs, ask your question on yahoo answers.
