What do we get drummed into our heads growing up?
The importance of being “nice.”
That word drives me crazy. In fact, the two words I dislike the most are nice and unique. Why? They don’t mean anything. Seriously, what does nice really mean? The absence of something bad. Think about it-what carries more weight, hearing someone say that so-and-so is a “nice guy” or that he is a “good man.”
The same goes for the word “unique.” If everyone is “unique” then by pure philosophical reasoning no one is.
