Playing "Nice"

Here's a lesson for you. You are doing nobody any favors "playing nice" all the time. If you are not speaking your truth you are causing problems. Avoidance is almost worse than telling a lie. The other person knows something is "off" but becomes powerless to fix or change the situation. You take away their ability and opportunity to correct and grow. You are far better speaking your truth with compassion and allowing the other person a chance to grow into a better person.

Also, when you open it for disscussion you may learn a new point of view or information you did not know that changes your perspective. Additionally, if someone asks if you are busy, don't be afraid to say yes, or even "sort of." We all have a lives too. People understand.

So, if something is bothering you, please, SAY SO!
