On paper, being good sounds great but a lot depends on the atmosphere of the workplace or community we live in. We tend to become good or bad depending on the cues sent out within a particular space. If you work in a space where everyone seems to be quite nice then you’ll end up quite nice. If you enter a space where bullying, thieving and lying is fine you’ll become like that. More public displays of kindness or empathy would help everyone in their attempt to be kinder.
