drinkH2O never let fear decide your fate
I went to volunteer at the Page Museum for their Kids ROCK event. While I was there, I was working at the raffles and t-shirt tent working with some other volunteers and a couple of people who are actually in the program. The other volunteers eventually left to other tents to help out and I was left with these old people.
Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with these people. They’re really nice and polite.
But as the day went on and I have spent about 7 hours straight with these people, I’ve realized that their politeness and kindness are only something they project on the outside.
I don’t really know them or their relationships with each other, but it just seems so cold and fake at the same time. I don’t know how to explain it, but you know when people are really nice to you and you feel like they’re really cool. But later you find out that they were only putting on a mask of niceness but inside they’re really stingy and mean. :\ I don’t like this.
I mean, of course we’ve all met people like this in our lives. But, that day I volunteered was the day I felt like everyone working at the museum was like that and I was quite disappointed.
& Please don’t get me wrong, don’t judge this museum as a bad one with bad people in it.. this is just real life and how the world really is.
Knowing that, I just felt really down the rest of the day and coming here today and saw this goal, I felt like this should become more of a reason for me to pursue this goal.
I want to be kind to everyone/strangers, and not just on the basic level.. but maybe even a little more? As in, not just on the outside to put on a service smile and act friendly and happy.. but to actually care about people and let them know that I am genuine and sincere in helping them and hope to get to know them, too.
