There is a great misconception in life that we can only spread kindness and goodness under the right conditions… or only when it is given to us or returned back to us.
Sometimes it is called weak or even looked down upon to be kind and compassionate instead of fighting back or angrily defending ourselves when we are met with unkindness or mercilessness.
We must always protect ourselves with personal boundaries, but we can always show up to life with a kind and compassionate heart, wishing only the best for each other.
Even when met with contention or meanness, we must never allow another person or situation to ever change who we are. We can be fiercely strong and stand our ground with kindness in our hearts at the same time.
