I want to hear more about the nice girls.

The ones that will leave a crowded table to sit with you, so you don't have to be alone.

The ones that will help out because they want to, not because you make them.

The ones that don’t engage in mean girl culture.


The ones that don’t give you a reason to raise your voice, and will always offer an ear to listen.

The ones that are always told to toughen up, when really our world needs to change drastically.

Being too nice isn’t a weakness---

It’s a superpower.

Because those nice girls make this world shine a little brighter.

I want to hear more about the nice girls.

The ones who don’t give you a reason to talk about them.

Those are the ones who NEED to be spoken about, so others follow their lead.
