What's so funny about compassion, kindness and being nice? Tom Fletcher.

Over recent years I've felt that a great many terms that should be championed have been left sliding out of sight, and in some cases they are being perceived as something that they are not.
An example would be compassion.
It’s a beautiful trait to have, but for some reason it can often be seen as a weakness.
Kindness is another.
Taking the time to be kind to another person is not a waste of time, but you could be forgiven for thinking that it is seen to be.
What else is there?
It sounds a bit soppy, and once again sort of weak.
Girls don’t like the nice boys.
Nice guys finish last.
We have all heard the phrases, but what’s so wrong about being nice, being compassionate or being kind?
What’s so wrong about caring for others, caring about your family, your friends, and even strangers?
The answer is of course that nothing is wrong with them.

So in the spirit of being nice here’s a nice video.
