The Politics of Nice

Just a quick post from me tonight.

I have to say I am one of those people who is generally pretty level headed when it comes to most things, one could say I am a "nice" person.  I hate thinking that I may have hurt someone's feelings by something I said or did.

There is an exception to this rule of course, I do speak up when it comes to work or family issues and generally have my opinion aired, but I can't help but wonder about the politics of being "nice".

Once your opinion is broadcast into the stratosphere, you put yourself out there for others to scrutinise, perhaps even read "between the lines" to a point where your views become so over analysed that they aren't your views at all, but the thoughts of the person reading them...


  1. Hi Luce
    I just write absolute rubbish and if people decide to read truth into it, well, it's all the juicier for them. It does not, however, make it true. Those who do not know you....does it matter what they think? Those who do know you will know the truth anyway.
    love Charlotte.

  2. you do make some good points Charlotte! I think I may have been feeling a little overly sensitive the day of my post & over anlaysing my thoughts somewhat! Oh well!

    I love reading your "rubbish" by the way, it always brings me a smile to read your witty words!
