Today the blog centers on seven important traits you need to know about nice people. I am discussing the very important art of kindness and diving into the world of nice people - in a world that is slowly becoming less kind. Social media is the greatest example of how easy it is for people to be easily cruel nowadays. I want to point out why it is important to be a nice person - and that you should understand the emotional and psychological lexicon of a nice person. The world can view nice people as weak and pushovers often. However, this is just not the case. Kindness is a strength.
It’s true you can both be nice as well as a f***ing warrior! Nice people are often only seen as just kind, gentle, and caring… But nice people possess a hidden strength that is often underestimated - and can actually be quite intimidating.
Today I want to make these points for the purpose of why you should always be nice. Also, if you are a nice person, why you shouldn’t be a pushover nice person, and why to cherish yourself as a nice person.
7 Traits of Nice People
#1 Nice People have Empathy
Nice people choose to be kind because they understand the pain and suffering others may have experienced. Their ability to empathize makes them powerful because they can connect with people on a deeper level, building stronger relationships and fostering a sense of community. Nice people have the unique ability to put themselves in someone else's shoes and truly understand their feelings and experiences. This empathy allows them to offer genuine support and comfort to those in need, making a lasting impact on the lives of others. As a fair warning because of this - nice people can tend to attract narcissists, people who love validation and crave attention. They are drawn to your warmth - but will take advantage of your kindness. Make sure you set your boundaries and don’t get taken for a ride.
#2 Nice People have Resilience
Nice people have often endured their fair share of brutality and hardships in life. However, instead of succumbing to bitterness or anger, they choose to overcome these challenges. Their inner strength and resilience allow them to rise above their own suffering, making them more compassionate and understanding. Nice people have faced adversity head-on and have emerged stronger on the other side. They have learned valuable life lessons from their experiences, which enables them to empathize with others and offer guidance and support during difficult times.
#3 Nice people have Emotional Intelligence
Nice people possess a high level of emotional intelligence. They have developed a keen awareness of their own emotions as well as the emotions of others. This emotional intelligence gives them the ability to navigate difficult situations with grace and tact, making them powerful mediators and problem solvers. Nice people can read subtle cues and understand underlying emotions, allowing them to respond in a thoughtful and considerate manner. This skill helps them diffuse conflicts, resolve misunderstandings, and create a harmonious environment wherever they go.
#4 Kindness Builds Bridges
Nice people excel at building bridges and fostering harmonious relationships. Their ability to bring people together and find common ground is a testament to their power and influence. They understand the importance of collaboration and create a positive environment for growth and progress. Nice people are skilled communicators who actively listen and show genuine interest in others. By creating a sense of unity and inclusivity, they foster a supportive atmosphere where everyone's voice is valued and respected.
# 5 Nice People Lead by Example
Nice people lead by example. They inspire others through their actions and demonstrate that kindness and compassion are not signs of weakness but of strength. Their ability to motivate and uplift those around them makes them powerful influencers, capable of bringing about positive change. Nice people understand that their behavior sets the tone for those around them. They embody the qualities they wish to see in others and inspire others to follow suit. Through their actions, they create a ripple effect, spreading kindness and positivity throughout their communities.
#6 Nice People Maintain Boundaries
Nice people know the importance of setting boundaries. They understand that being kind doesn't mean being a pushover. They assert themselves when necessary, protecting their own well-being and the well-being of others. This ability to establish and maintain boundaries adds to their overall strength. Nice people have a clear understanding of their values and priorities, and they ensure that their actions align with them. By setting healthy boundaries, they cultivate relationships built on mutual respect and trust, while also taking care of their own emotional and mental well-being.
#7 Nice People Are Strong
While nice people may appear gentle on the surface, beneath their kind exterior lies a powerful beast. When pushed too far or when confronted with injustice, they tap into their inner strength, unleashing a force to be reckoned with. Nice people are not to be messed with, for they have conquered their own demons and are capable of standing up for what is right.
Nice people possess a reservoir of inner strength that can be unleashed when the situation demands it. When faced with acts of cruelty, injustice, or the mistreatment of others, their kindness transforms into a fierce determination to make things right. They refuse to stand idly by when they witness suffering or unfairness. This unleashed beast within them propels them to take action and fight for justice and equality.
It's harder to be nice than it is to be mean
The power of a nice person's beast lies in their ability to channel their anger and frustration into constructive actions. They employ their strong sense of empathy to understand the pain and suffering of others, and it fuels their determination to create positive change. Nice people become warriors for justice, advocating for the voiceless and standing up against oppression. They use their influence and compassion to dismantle systems of injustice and create a more inclusive and equal society.
It is important to remember that the beast within a nice person is not driven by aggression or revenge. Instead, it is a force born out of a deep sense of empathy and a commitment to making the world a better place. Nice people wield this power responsibly, channelling it into transformative actions that uplift and empower others.
And there you have it—the seven reasons why nice people are far from weak. Let's quickly recap the key points we discussed in each segment:
