I don’t get it. It’s easy right?
Don’t lie. Don’t cheat. Don’t steal. Be a good person. Why is that so hard for people?
Why do people trample over eachother to get ahead? I am a super passionate person and I am a beast when I want something. Not afraid to climb to the top of the mountain and chase my goals. But guess what? I can still do it, without harming people along the way. I refuse to stop being the nice girl.
I will continue to be honest. Maybe that’s a fault? Maybe I need to cover up my messes and pretend I am perfect and throw other people under the bus. But NOPE, not me. I own my shit. I take responsibilty. I have learned as a parent, that this is my number one lesson. We all make mistakes, just accept it and figure out how to improve. My conscience is clear. I know my truth and I will continue to be the nice girl.
Why cheat? I work hard to accomplish my goals. Sometimes life throws us curveballs and you just keep going. Just keep trekking. You can do it, honestly, there’s no need to pretend. And frankly, how do you sleep at night? Eventually the truth will come to light. What I earned rightfully, cannot be taken away. I will always be the nice girl.
Go ahead, steal. But not me. If it doesn’t belong to me, I havent earned it, I don’t deserve it. I am not going to steal it. You don’t have to hurt people to get what you want. Can’t we all just lift eachother up? Why can’t we all be nice to eachother? Despite it all, I will continue to be the nice girl.
And somedays, I am heartbroken at how many people aren’t nice. So many people fein kindness and mask their behavior. And it’s disgusting really. I just don’t get it. I am not perfect. I screw up often. But I try, atleast, try to be an honest, good person at all costs. It’s simple. You can still hustle without stabbing people in the back. But that’s your truth, not mine. Hope you can live with yourself. Someday, it will matter. There will be consequences.
And at the end of the day, no matter what, I know I chose the path of light. I will never be that cut throat. I fight for what is right and good in the world. Doesn’t mean I am not mean or a jerk sometimes. But overall I know I am a good person. I choose to be the nice girl. And always will….
