Agree or disagree: If you're nice, people will take advantage of you?

Update:

Like if you're a business and you give out free water, people will always come in for free water or of you give a homeless person a free ride on the bus, why should they ever pay?

    yes, absolutely, some ppl think you won't say no or will turn into their enabler, setting boundaries is crucial. ppl sadly think kindness is weakness and bad ppl will hone in on it.

    Disagree, if you have "lack of boundaries" people will take advantage of you, but you can be nice and still have boundaries. It is the boundaries that prevent people from taking advantage it has nothing to do with kindness itself.

      the more diverse a community, country, district etc, the less niceness pays

    I agree, I had a friend once who kept asking to borrow money and I gave until he owed me about $120, I finally said no and broke off my friendship with him.

    Very much disagree.

    I am friendly, nice and very kind but do not allow people to take advantage. Learned to navigate "users" decades ago.

    I own a business, a brewery with my husband and his brother and wife. I provide help to the local homeless people in my area, never money, and it has not become a problem. If it did I would stop. I give out an occasional soda or bottled water.

    sometimes agree

    Disagree.

    It is possible to be nice and also cautious about being taken advantage of. There's a difference between being nice and being a fool.
