the disadvantages of being nice.
Wait. How could there possibly be disadvantages of being nice to someone? Oh, there are so many. It's an extremely logical point of view, if you ask me. After our intriguing discussion, we were assigned to write a paragraph on the said title above. Consequently, I was unable to turn my paragraph in. I thought I carried a good argument. So, as to no further adieu, here it is.
The Disadvantages of Being Nice
For centuries, the human race has been taught and raised to act kindly to others. However, this creates implications to every day life; it impairs emotions, personal opinions, relationships with others, and leaves negative impressions. As in an act of kindness one chooses to talk to a slightly awkward individual, the consequence of this kind act turns into the "shiny new toy" outcome. This awkward individual now thinks a new friend came about because someone proved "kind" enough to carry on a small yet quite uncomfortable conversation. As another example, if approached by a person dressed quite outlandish and asks, "Does this outfit look good?", and it obviously doesn't, the kind thing would result in an answer like, "Why yes of course it does!", when really, the opposite opinion is the truth. This kindness in fact questions and changes one's veracity, and people lost trust in this person's opinion. Other disadvantages can but not always include damaged relationships, along with negative impressions. Fake people never succeed, and nice guys finish last.
