This is going to be multiple parts due to multiple questions in one message.
I think the nicest thing I’ve done (but recently as my memory is like a goldfish) is that I gave a family member my old macbook which was worth ~£600 (£2.5k at point of sale) because I knew they were desperate for a new computer.
Meaning thing (recently - memory like a goldfish) - a coworker at work made a mistake, and since I’ve been dealing with another co-worker underperforming I ended up calling my boss sounding like a klaxon alarm. My boss was like “chill man, he’s fine, he made a mistake”.
But then I did say to the guy we needed a talk in Slack (private work messaging) and it did sound threatening.
I didn’t mean to sound like a dick and in the context of his mistake, it wasn’t even that bad. Looking back I over-reacted on that one, not proud of that moment.
Nicest thing someone has done for me: well I’m trying to go back on dating and I’ve ended up matching with a lady in Trinidad. She hasn’t done anything per se, but the conversations has been absolutely wonderful.
Meaning thing someone has done to me: I honestly try not to dwell on stuff like that - don’t know about anybody else but my brain has a tendency to attach onto negative things, and I don’t think that sort of thinking is good for *anyone*.
I try my best to catch myself thinking negatively about folks and trying to stop it.
