Nice Girls Rule 60-Day Challenge: Day 2

For the next two months, every time I post a Blog/Twitter/Facebook message it will be about one simple way to increase your nice girl power. These will be simple ways to make your corner of the world a better place and to celebrate who you are, a woman who has committed herself to giving nice a good name. Here's today's challenge!-

Nice Girls Rule Challenge Day 2:

Be the bigger person.

Thought of the Day: It seems like something your grandma may have told you to be the bigger person to those mean girls in school, right? And while you may have heard it before, I can assure you that when you apply it to the difficult women you deal with in your life, being the bigger person is what makes nice girls able to adapt to otherwise ugly situations.

So what are a couple of practical ways to do this?

1. Don't be afraid to start off a difficult conversation with "I understand". Most times women who are intimidated are always on the defense. If you give her respect from the get-go, things will be easier to manage.

2. Don't give "attitude" back. It can be hard to keep your cool when being egged on by mean or malicious women. Bite your tongue and keep your head about you. She wants nothing more than to see you say something you shouldn't.
