Nice Is Good

Let’s talk about settling today. When it comes to love and relationships, is nice really good? In one of top 3 favorite movies ever, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Joel (Jim Carrey’s character) tells us he doubts he’ll ever meet anyone new and wonders if he should get back together with his ex. “She was nice. Nice is good” (not an exact quote) is what he says. When I was younger I had a lot of friends and an ex of my own tell me I reminded them of Jim Carey’s character in the movie and when I heard that quote from the film today I was reminded of the times in my life when I’ve said roughly similar thing to myself. So I began to wonder about nice and whether it really is good. I say it isn’t. I say nice is what we allow ourselves to believe so we can sleep at night. That’s all I’ve got to say about that.
