Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Book Preview: #1 Nice is a word we all use, but seldom stop to think about. It's a confession that being nice is the same as being a good person, and behind that is the fear that if you're less nice, you are selfish and bad.#2 Being nice is about making everything smooth for others, based on the theory that if you please others, give them everything they want, and keep a low profile, they will like you and love you. But this theory is inaccurate.#3 The opposite of nice is being real. It's being direct, honest, and truthful. It's saying what you really think, feeling how you really feel, and sharing what's true for you in that moment. This authenticity allows others to see and know the real you, which allows you to feel love and connection.#4 I understand the urge to be nice. I know how strong the invisible forces of guilt and fear can be. It can be difficult to push through this to say what you really want and express what you really think and feel.
