The nicer I am to people, the less they help me. Yet, I don't want to change who I am just for friendships or help with my problems. I wonder if eventually people will see what a nice person I am and want to be my friend, or maybe I am a sucker. Should I treat people the way they treat me? Or just be myself, know that no one will help or care, but remain true to myself, and lower my expectations of others? Or should I try to find other friends altogether?
