I remember a time when being considered nice was an amazing compliment. People would say “oh you’ll like her/him, she’s/he’s really nice.” It seems like I see more people that want to be the person that takes no shit from anyone. Being a pushover is not a good thing, but being rude or loud just so people know you’re not gonna be walked all over isn’t really a positive or attractive trait to me.
I’m an independent person, and I’m becoming assertive now, but I would never use foul language, sarcasm, or an entitled tone to seem strong and cool. I would much rather ignore what I don’t like or just talk to the other person about it first.
Wouldn’t you feel happier knowing that people see you in a positive light? I want to be that helpful and fun person that people think about years from now.
