Can you be too nice? Yes, yes and yes
Today’s post is to give everyone a reminder to be thoughtful and mindful about their lives!
If you’ve spent time this week being bitter because you’ve helped others and now they’re not helping you…You may be too nice.
(Make darn sure that others KNOW what you need when you need it.)
If you find it hard to tell someone who is disrespecting you that you WILL NOT be treated that way…You may be too nice.
(Learn ways to be assertive in your approach to other people.)
If you have seen someone else been mistreated and haven’t been able to speak up to stop it…You may be too nice.
(Learn about the effects of bystanders on bullying situations. Knowing the dynamics helps you to change them.)
If you have told your children or others that they just need to “be nice”… You may be too nice.
(Being nice is awesome. It is not a comprehensive solution for changing the world)
SO…this week, I encourage you to get out there and get nasty. When you see something going wrong, when you see someone being disrespected…step in. Show people that you care. You might change a life and not even know it.
