being nice has gotten tiring

Friday, September 14, 2007
Being nice for convention’s sake; trying to be pleasant though my blood is boiling; keeping a smile on my face though my eyebrows are threatening to lift; saying what others want to hear instead of what I really want to say; denying my own convictions for the sake of peace and quiet – these have all become so tiring that I’d rather be called a bitchy than nice. Voicing out exactly what I think and feel is very liberating.

Just recently, somebody asked me for advice. Being brutally frank, I told him what I thought about the whole thing. Then I found out that he got hurt by what I said. Well, if he wanted sugarcoated words, he should have asked somebody else. Sympathy is only given to those who deserve it. And as they say, truth hurts.

Others may call it being mean, tactless or bitchy but hypocrisy it is not. Life is too short to spend it feigning something that is not.

(Summarized and translated in Ilocano, as requested: Makapauma ‘ti aginsisimpet. Mas nasyaat nu ibaga iti pudno, uray nu nasakit; uray nu kita da kinyak ket natangsit.)

This week while I was driving to work, domo arigato Mr. Roboto, was played on the radio. Later, I learnt from Japanese-American girlfriend (female friend) what it meant. I decided to impress you and oh boy did I get in the face. ;) Have a nice weekend, Angeli.

Naranggas!
