Things I've Learned: Niceness

_Strictly Niceness Dimitri From Paris @ Bodega-2

In my experience, people use "niceness" as an easy excuse for cowardice or disregard. I know it sounds terribly cynical, but I've learned not to trust people who pride themselves on being nice. The world is not a nice place and sometimes doing the right thing means not being nice. (People who say "they're just honest" do the same thing but in the opposite way.)

It's easy being nice. It's easy being non-confrontational. It's easy choosing no side. But as the saying goes, if you stand for nothing you'll fall for anything.

And if you care more about being "nice" than doing the right thing, you aren't nice. You're shallow.
