I Think Being Nice Is Important

    You never really know what someone is going

    through. They could be on the verge of killing themselves and your comment could be that last thing they hear. I don't see the point in being rude, anyway. But I believe that being nice could make or break someone's day.

    My Word! It'S So Important

    I think that being a bastard is more difficult than being nice. I speak to, meet, email so many over the course of the day. Without exaggerating , More than 50% are either rude, don't reply to your email. Don't even speak when being served, because no one tells them it's rude...

    It's Not So Nice To Be The Nice Guy

    I always put other's feelings and happiness first. This is true in everything I do. I have lost a few girlfriends because they say they want a nice guy only to want a badboy. I can say this, I know how to please a girl in the bedroom more than any other guy I know. I prefer my...

    One of the Life's More Pleasant Challenges

    Where Is the Harm?

     I think being nice is a good default state. People all to often seem to have a default setting which is cynical and antagonistic. This seems to me a sad way for a species to interact with each other. I appreciate there is a need for people to be safe but even so  smile...

    Not just fake being nice.  I'm talking real, genuinely being nice.  Like it comes from deep down inside of you.  Don't put on a show for me.  Don't just pretend to consider me enough to be nice.    I won't for you.With that being said, there are people who you just don't...

    I enjoy being nice to people,

    life is to short to be angry and sad all the time! We all have our days but I try to focus on being positive. Yes everyone knows that one person who is ridiculously happy and it's annoying but being nice is a good thing and shouldn't be a rare quality in today's world.

    To A Point.

    Yeah I agree being nice is important. However the important part is knowing when to draw the line. You don't want people stepping all over your toes because they know you'll just smile and say don't worry about it. You have to stand up for yourself even if it means being rude to...

    What Kind Of World Do You Want To Live In?

    Do you want to live in a place where everyone is out for themselves at all times and will screw for nothing or a place where people are trying to help one another? The choice is being made by you (yes, you reader) everyday. My choice is to be nice.

    I Think It Is and I Hope I Am

    I don't really like the word 'nice' - its very insipid.  But the associations the word has - politeness, civility, kindness, friendliness, courtesy - are important I think and I hope I behave that way in most cases. Today I might not have been very nice - you can see my...

    Mr. Nice Guy

    How Sad.

    It's very sad when people make a conscious effort to be mean to someone.  Especially someone they don't even know.  No matter how "crazy"(I despise that word) you may feel someone is, if you don't truly know them you can't judge them. The person you just cursed out and called...

    I respect people who can be nice.

    Sometimes it's extremely hard to be nice. I am learning to be nice to these people who aren't so nice to me. I have no choice but to like them for the next 2 years because it's impossible to leave them. I'm not being bullied but I'm not getting treated fairly.

    Realise that you can't always count on others

    to respect your feelings,even if you respect theirs.Being a good person doesn't guarantee that others will be good people too.You only have control over yourself, over how you choose to be as an individual.And as for others,you can only accept them or walk away.
