It makes me sad sometimes, when people thank me for being nice to them

Sure, that's just a common gesture to show appreciation since not everyone is nice, but with some, you can tell they're thanking you because they're not used to people being nice to them. 馃槦 Especially when they use such cautious language, assuming you're going to think badly of them for some of the stuff about themselves they share with you. It shows they're used to being judged by others. I wish people had more empathy... and opened minds. 馃槖
Well its good to show appreciation to those that are kind to you though

Unfortunately it is easier for people to immediately judge than to try to be understanding. Most people don鈥檛 have the will power and many not even the intelligence that it takes to hold back 鈥渆asy instant judgement鈥. They鈥檇 rather keep their brains turned off.

@Ducky Yep, I see this a lot with others鈥 interactions with my son. He is not neurotypical, he has ADHD and some social/communication things on the Autism Spectrum. Many people, kids and adults alike, would rather instantly pass judgement on him as 鈥渁nnoying鈥 or 鈥減roblematic鈥 because he might behave more hyper or rigidly than the average kid, and it takes him longer to understand social cues. The ones that do take the time to understand him will eventually see that he truly is a good hearted person, and they are happy that they did bother to take that time with him鈥ut that鈥檚 a rare occasion unfortunately. 鈥淚f you don鈥檛 fit our mold, then you are bad鈥 is the status quo.
