Tortuous Niceness

Every day we experience a torrent of unreasonable expectations and outrageous demands, especially those we place on ourselves. I decided for a New Year's resolution this year I would do something different. Instead of going on the usual diet and exercise, giving up coffee, pop, candy, etc, I decided to get in touch with my inner self and break the habit of "Tortuous Niceness."

No more giving, giving and more giving. Even giving away gifts that I had received. I decided to turn up the volume on the little voice inside my head that's whispering, "I don't think so!" when I want to start giving too much.

I will still be nice, but not "Tortuous Nice."
