Are You Simply Nice, or a Good Person:

You do understand there is a difference between the two. Right? A nice person is not necessarily a good person. Just as a good person is necessarily nice all the time.

If you understand this, it will save you a lot of unnecessary head and heartaches. For sure, it will help you understand someone like me. I have no care about being nice. 

I am nice normally, but when the occasion calls for it, my niceness disappears effortlessly. And, I am okay with it. Really? I hear someone says. Really. Truly, really. Get with the program.

The Holy Book tells us, 

"*I could give all that I have to feed the poor, I could surrender my body to be burned as a martyr, but if I do not live in love, I gain nothing by my selfless acts."

Niceness is nothing without goodness. Goodness is in a world of its own, producing life for the bearer and all those around. I'll rather be good than being nice. Niceness without goodness is temporal and truly nothing.

We see a synonym in the way sound is perceived. Goodness is analogous to music, while niceness on its own is noise. Wikipedia defines noise as unpitched, indeterminate, uncontrolled, loud, unmusical, or unwanted sound. 

All those adjectives used in the same way for niceness or goodness will produce the same effect. That is, your niceness could be perceived as noise and repugnant if it is without boundaries.

So, which are you? A good or a mere nice person?

Still Loving You.
St. Akin de Great.
