Niceness is OVERRATED. Well, don’t you think so? We live in a world, when someone is nice to us, we can’t digest it. We tend to scrutinize the nice act by breaking it down to 100 pieces & trying to find the intend behind the act. Or we just end up thinking why is he being nice to me? Wait, it doesn’t stop here. People tend to repay niceness by either “considering the good guy as a weakling & by ill-treating him” or “considering them evil with hidden motives”.
There is nothing fishy about goodness. In fact, there is no apocalypse right now, because of good people! If someone may have mistreated you, you need to learn from the experience & move on, you can’t scar yourself based on bad experiences(learn more about it here). Honestly, there is an explanation for almost everything, but this mindset of goodness being unacceptable is something I can’t comprehend. Pause & reflect: Where does this thought process come from? Do you think that goodness doesn’t exist? Or people can’t be kind?
What is beyond acceptable is the new ideology which is trending on every social media platform: “DON’T BE TOO NICE”. Firstly, you don’t want to acknowledge any goodness that exists, overlook good people & now you preach “don’t be nice”. See, if this is your ideology & if we were in the world of Harry Potter, seems to me, you are a death eater #TheArmyofDarkLord #LordVoldemort. (P.S. : I’m a proud potter head , thanks to my BFF). We don’t support the evil, so why do we speak like one?
“The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference.”― Elie Wiesel
You need to change the way you think & know that people, for most of the times are nice without any reason (why would someone hold the door for you in an elevator while you rush towards it? why would someone care to give you a smile when they see you?). Try to be more like them. Do acts of goodness, go out of the way to help people, CARE & stop being indifferent. Repay goodness with nothing but kindness & preach kindness. We want the world to be a happy place with happy faces and not the other way round. I would like to leave you here with
It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.– Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
