confession: i have a feeling i'm not as nice as i think i am.

Wednesday, January 13, 2010

sarcastic. cynical. quick-witted. this is how i'd describe myself. my humor is sharp, bleak and dark. some people get it and others don't. okay fine.

but besides being funnily mean, i think i can be actually mean. i have a problem admitting when i'm wrong, apologizing, giving compliments, or being anything but brutally honest when someone asks my opinion or comes to me with a problem. i sometimes think that i would be a terrible mother because i don't really seem to be maternal. like, at all.

and the kicker is that i'm mostly mean to the people i care about. which i know is a cliche but seriously, that is messed up.

so. enter a late new year's resolution: i'm going to do my best to be NICE. i'm going to give compliments if someone deserves one, admit when i'm wrong or if i've messed up, and stop giving off such a cold front to the people i care about. i have a feeling that everyone around me will be happier and i'll probably be a lot happier as well.

    Instead of saying what your doing is a *new resolution* which we all know we ususally give up on or break by Feb. or March at the latest............

    Why not set yourself some *nice* goals.

    Like *be nick to my co-worker or classmates 4 times a week* or *give a compliment to my significant other or parent 2 times a week and things like that.

    Make yourself a list and check things off each week and before you know it, it will be a habit and I bet your right, those around you will be happier and so will you.

    Great blog.

    I find myself being the same way. I think it's easier to be mean to those we care about, because deep down we think that they'll be around no matter what. My sense of humor is the same way too...BUT, I think that's fine. :)
    Good luck with your resolution! I think that just by acknowledging your "downfall" you are already succeeding!
