I’m Not Nice, But I Am Kind

Hey y’all. So recently I have regained some of my “spunk” and I feel like you guys haven’t seen a large part of me. My sarcastic, brutally honest, sassy side. I’ve really been itching to do more argumentative posts, and I felt like you guys all needed a warning.

not nice

I AM NOT A NICE PERSON. At all. Ever. I don’t believe in the word nice, and will never use it as a positive thing. “Nice” is ultimately the complete bane of my existence, the one attribute and type of person that I cannot stand.

Now, before you all freak out and tell me how terrible of a person I am and blah blah blah (not that I would really care….)

This is the definition of nice:

Nice: adj; pleasant or pleasing or agreeable in nature or appearance; socially or conventionally correct; refined or virtuous

Essentially, this means that you are being positive and agreeable to fit in with society, also knows as agreeing with someone or being “nice” to someone because you are expected to.

The definition of kind is as follows:

Kind: adj; having or showing a tender and considerate and helpful nature; used especially of persons and their behavior; characterized by mercy, and compassion


This means that people are being helpful and aware of others because they WANT to. They genuinely care about other people. Which brings me into my point of honesty.

Now I’m not just honest, I’m brutally honest. In my opinion, it is better for someone to be hurt at first rather than to feel lied to in the end. I have a huge issue with trust, and this would just blow it over the edge.

I actually can keep my mouth shut, but if you ask for my opinion, I will tell you what I actually think about the situation. No exceptions. No lies.

not rude

In the end, what I’m trying to say is that I will be giving my opinion, regardless of what you think. This doesn’t mean I don’t value your thoughts in any way, but I will NOT be apologizing.

(Sidenote: I understand that some of you may disagree with me on my view of never being nice and being brutally honest, and that will never be me. This is not because I don’t think I can “change” but because I don’t want or feel the need to. )

And this doesn’t mean I am going to be a complete jerk in any way, I just thought a fair warning was in order.

I love all of you! – Aspen AKA The Sass Queen
