It's nice to be nice. Agree? I really do.
I believe in an eye for an eye. In the same context, I truly believe if I'm nice to others, they will be nice to me too. Although I can't expect others to be nice to me all the time, I can always do my part to be nice to them.
A few days ago, I was on the level of low positive energy for quite some time. I was trying to find out why certain people can be so nasty. So I kept on reminding myself not to be as nasty. In the back of my mind, I believe in the end of the day, nastiness doesn't get you anywhere. People remember, especially all the nasty stuff you did and the nasty words you said.
Come to think of it, is there any difference between 'don't be nasty' and 'be nice'? Maybe yes, maybe no. Either way, I think it gets me nowhere if I keep on trying to find ways to reciprocate others' nastiness or get even or something towards that extent.
I will learn to shift my focus from 'don't be nasty' to 'just be nice' as much as I can! From now onwards, I'm gonna practice "it's nice to be nice!" It can be as simple as a polite nod or smile or just plain ol' "Thank you!"
