Advice based on observation

Do those
who are always nice
lack the courage
to be otherwise?

Or do those
who are always snappy
lack the know-how
to be happy?

Why do we applaud
mean-spirited put-downs?
Why do we laugh at
the media's top clowns?

We do appreciate 'smarts'
but please take my cue:
be good to yourself
and to others too.

There is such a fine line between being nice and lacking courage. For those of us who are labelled "nice", people are somewhat surprised when I speak up strongly for those things that mean a lot to me. To me, "Nice" just means that I choose my battles carefully!
