Being “Too Nice”

I would like to rant about something.

In recent years, I’ve heard a lot of people say things like “I can’t be friends with someone who’s too nice” or “people who are too nice are annoying”. 

Well I have come to take that personally and would like to respond to that. The reason I am nice and have been considered “too nice” is because I have seen how capable I am of hurting someone through speech and action. Like really hurting someone.

As a result, the words I choose are softer, and the things I do are more cautious. Maybe now in modern times, the trend is to be an asshole. In all honestly, those are the types of people who are more likely to get what they want. But I refuse to step on people for the sake of being perceived as more “real” or getting what I want.

Besides, it’s fun to see people react when I finally do show an extreme emotion because then it is the scariest thing in the world. 

I should just move to Canada.

idk if you can read the sentence on the right page but its relevance is that a while ago my boyfriend texted me “goodnight, sweetheart” but sweetheart autocorrected to “stardust” and i thought that was really beautiful but anyway things have been really complicated lately so i ran away to the mountains to try to clear my head and it didn’t work but at least i made this while i was there and i’ve missed the mountains for a long time so

The Harry Potter geek in me just freaked out.

Disturb us, Lord, when we are too well pleased with ourselves, 

when our dreams have come true because we have dreamed too little, when we arrive safely because we sailed too close to the shore. 


Disturb us, Lord, when with the abundance of things we possess,
we have lost our thirst for the waters of life, 
having fallen in love with life, we have ceased to dream of eternity, 
and in our efforts to build a new earth, 
we have allowed our vision of the new heaven to dim. 


Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly, to venture on wider seas, 
where storms will show your mastery, 
where losing sight of land, we shall find the stars. 
We ask you to push back the horizon of our hopes, 
and to push us into the future in strength, courage, hope, and love. 
This we ask in the name of our Captain, who is Jesus Christ.

—Francis Drake (via definedbyyou)

Amen and amen!
