I Want to be Kind

Experimental self portrait video expressing that I am tired of letting people walk all over me

I have always been a shy human being, and people have always described me as being nice. I always thought being nice was a good trait-but the more I learn about myself and the world, the more I come to realize that being nice isn’t always such a good thing.

“Nice” is defined as “pleasing; agreeable; delightful”,  while “kind” is defined as “having, showing, or proceeding from benevolence.”

I came to the conclusion that I am tired of being nice if it means letting people walk over me, I would rather be kind...kindness means speaking up for myself and others even if it is uncomfortable to do so.
