“No matter who you interact with, don’t be too humble. Only when you are appropriately strong can you be respected; only when you refuse appropriately can you avoid bullying. Because human nature is to bully the weak and fear the strong, and few people are exceptions.”

We only have one life. After a hundred years, neither you nor I will exist. In this life, we do not owe anyone anything except our parents. Therefore, when interacting with others, we do not need to be humble everywhere.

We don’t need to be humble and flattering to anyone, because we don’t owe them anything. Our weakness will only make us the target of bullying, and excessive softness and apology will only hurt us. Rationality, a slightly indifferent attitude, and a firm stand are our powerful weapons to survive in this world.

Kindness itself is a virtue, but the problem is that people often lack contentment and gratitude. Sometimes, the kinder you are, the easier it is for others to bully you. Therefore, while we should remain kind, we should also learn to be strong in certain situations. In this way, others can better understand our bottom line. The less likely you are to be bullied, the more others will respect you.
