It is more important to be kind than nice. Often people need to hear something bad about themselves, but they are more likely to hear it when it is spoken with kindness.

If somebody is doing something that affects your life harmfully or negatively, I absolutely no reason to be nice or kind about it.

I believe that's the reason we've gotten to the point-of-no-return in American society.

Because being being a d*ck is not effective.
