Always try to empathize with others and make a genuine effort to understand their situation. You never know what another person may have going on in their life, what they might be dealing with. And you may not truly be able to understand until you get to know them better or experience their situation yourself. But, that's why rather than pass judgement on others, we should treat them with kindness and understanding instead. Show them tolerance and acceptance.
Take pride in who you are, who you love, and how you identify. Don't let others dull your brilliant shine. Even if certain people don't accept or understand you, the important thing is for you to be happy with yourself. So, live your truth every single day and flaunt who you are inside.
You keep showing me kindness after kindness, A bittersweet realization that more Will never be within my reach The kindness that glimmers In your bright eyes and serene smile, Is really just a hidden cruelty
A true friend will treat you with care, respect, and kindness. They'll consider your feelings when choosing their words and actions. So if a friend constantly makes you feel down, is critical to the point of just being cruel, or purposely says/does things they know will make you upset, that person isn't a true friend and they don't deserve your friendship. You should never be made to feel lesser by the people around you, and if that's the case, it may be time to remove them from your life. Remember, you deserve care, respect, kindness, and so many other wonderful things.
Please consider how your words and actions impact others. They can be very powerful tools, and used in a positive way, can make a positive difference in the lives of others. However, words and actions have the power to achieve the opposite as well. It's up to us to be responsible and considerate in how we act, along with how we treat others. So, please, always stop to think how your words or actions might affect the people around you. We have the ability to leave a positive or negative impact on the world and its people.
