Army of Ink Tired of Nice

Army of ink tired of being nice

She grew tired of being so nice.

Footnote story:  When you’re a nice person who is caring and kind and considerate of other people’s feelings. Generous with your time and heart.  It’s quite a blow when you come into contact with people who aren’t nice.  People who think only of themselves.  They’re rude and bad mannered.  Thoughtless and ungrateful. Sometimes cruel and hurtful. Careless with their words – and the feelings of others. It can knock you flat. Leave you sick in the belly and wobbly in lip.

But then you get back up and learn to be a bit more economical with your niceness. Careful about the amount of good energy you give to certain people and ensure it goes where it can do the most good. And when you feel how bad the opposite to nice feels, you realise just how important it is in the world.
