I am too nice for my own good. Sometimes I am nice to a fault and let people walk over me. I guess its because I wanna get along with everyone. We need more nice people in the world but perhaps with a bit of moxie and vinegar when needed.
Compliments are great when you can get them. They are even better to give. However it seems that folks aren’t used to getting them these days. We hear and experience such negativity that we need reminding of how special we are. It could be how we look on any given day or perhaps you have done something great for someone. Either way getting acknowledgment for it is fantastic. Lifting the spirits of those around you can be a great way to build people up. Lord knows we get enough tearing down.
Being nice to the dorky, nerdy kid from your high school and college days is a good thing. They could be your boss someday or perhaps a killer coming after you for the way you treated him/her. Just saying.
