This is a question I was asked in a lecture earlier this week: Am I nice, or am I honest?
My instant reaction was that I’m always honest but after thinking, I realised a lot of the time I’m nice over being honest. I re-word what I say and what I mean to make people happy. This sounds terrible I know, and I feel like a horrible person for doing this but I have good intentions. Right?
Well, I know I can’t talk after admitting what I just did, but there are some instances when you know not to be anything but honest.
Actually, scrap that. I wrote this blog post to talk about honesty vs being nice, when actually it’s not what I want to say. But at the same time, kind of is.
What I don’t understand is how someone can go from being so close with you, to not wanting anything at all? I recently tried to mend things with a friend after making a mess of it all. We become friends again, but things got carried away and I thought that for my own sake, and theirs, things would be better if we forgot everything. So I guess this does link in with the title? I was trying to be honest over nice, but yet again, it didn’t work.
See, I never expected a reply, but I didn’t expect the reply I received either.
Basically, where I’m going with this is. People are not what you expect them to be. Things don’t always work out the way you want them to. But at the end of the day, we win some and we lose some. And on the bright side I guess I will learn from this and learn to pick my friends better next time!
