Is it bad to be super nice in this world?

Report as

I think its good to be nice, but you still have to have your own boundarys and limits and not be afraid to stop being nice when those areas are being tested.

It's not bad to be nice, but some people are too nice. Too nice to the point where I just want to hit them.

People may take advantage of a really nice person, but its not bad, some teenagers like to be bad to be cool type thing, and may frown upon it, but doing the right thing feels good, eventually.

No. It is not bad or wrong to be nice. Just be sincere. What goes around comes around.

It's nice to be nice, but super nice? That makes my teeth ache. Super nice people are so nice that it's hard to be comfortable around them.
Then you have to ask yourself what "nice" really means.
She's a nice girl. (Plain but pleasant.)
He's a nice guy. (Friendly but ineffectual.)
Perhaps a better ambition would be to be thoughtful, or friendly, or supportive.
Whatever you call it, just remember that the most important person in your life is YOU. If you look after yourself without trying to take advantage of other people, that's nice enough.

As long as you are not just being nice to be nice, you're ok. That is just as bad as being mean to be mean. If your goal is to be liked by everyone, you will be just as unsuccessful as those who strive to be hated by everyone are successful. People in the helping professions (doctors, counselors, teachers,etc.) have this idea called "unconditional positive regard" that I try to live by. Basically, you assume everyone you meet is as good and decent a person as anyone else until they give you reason to believe otherwise. Usually I find that if I approach each person I meet in such a countenance, I am proven right. And if I am not, I know it was them and not me, and the gloves come off.

Well if people are taking advantage of you stand up for yourself. But other wise. Kill em with kindness.

Just be careful who your nice to. It's an art nowadays trying to pick out & seperate the scammers from the sincere in need of a helping hand.
