No wonder you are so kind and gentle. I remember my friend I've known since before kindergarten had a hugging and loving home and she is very nice person to this day.

I feel very fortunate that I came from a loving, huggy, kissy type family. We also grew up with manners and said thank you and showed appreciation to people.
I'm thinking that there are some people who just don't show their feelings or they are very shy, or have social anxieties or perhaps might be experiencing some personal problems in their lives, so they aren't quite themselves.

I did a good bit for my friends granddaughter who is 12 for her birthday, balloons, candy and 125 dollar shoes and she didn't thank me. It made me not like her. She just kind of expected it.
