Throw Kindness Around Like Confetti16:03
I was sitting in my room a few days ago and just had a moment when I clicked. For some reason I remembered all of the negative things that happened in the last few months, all of the times I got upset for various reasons and... I also thought how lucky I am for what I have now and how grateful should I be, for everything, the good and the bad, cause they all made me learn something really important. (Also, meanwhile, I started scrolling around Pinterest and found this quote: Throw Kindness Around Like Confetti, and it struck my mind, and everything came together).
We all have various reasons to feel sad, disappointed, tired of absolutely everything, reasons to hate something, but at the end of the day, how much of all this is worth it? How much happier will you be if you answer someone's mean behavior with the same mean attitude? Will you be satisfied? For how long?
I have always been the kind of person that refuses to revenge. If someone hurts me, I will go away, as simple as that. But, even though I try, I do as well make my mistakes and act a bit mean when I shouldn't, and to be honest we always act in a very mean and hateful way when something is wrong with us, when in fact there is something else that bothers us, that upsets us and that goes through our minds.
I know it may be really hard to be positive and kind all the time, mostly when the people around us aren't, but, at the end of the day, keeping yourself human is what matters. What do I mean? Being a kind and thoughtful person, spreading love, that is what being a human being is all about, that is what sets you apart from others. How many people just smile at you of pure kindness? How many people just help you when you need them without asking absolutely nothing in return? How many people can you call when you are down? If your answer to any of this questions is none, that you have to be that person, for the others around you. You should be kind, you should be supportive, you should still be human. You should never, but never answer in a mean way to the ones that hurt, but instead, just show them that you do have a good heart, show them that you are capable of love, and then, leave, they don't deserve to have you if they constantly hurt you, but definitely should know who you are. Just... please, be kind. Please don't lose that pure essence of kindness, and also spread it along, for those who really need it, for those who are so upset and in so much need of love.
I know it may be a lot to take, I know that you will hurt, a lot, but still, my dear, this is the only way to keep your humanity. Be kind. Be human.
