“Do you really think we can always respond with kindness?”


This could have been a really short post.

It still might be.

This is an ugly, ugly world sometimes.

I contributed to the ugliness for a lot of my life.

Maybe not in any significant way, but in ways that were probably significant to the people who were affected by my ugliness.

The way we treat and mistreat people affects them, and mistreating people affects us. Everything that we do adds to the sum total of everything that is floating around in the world in some way, no matter how small.

I want my contribution to always be one of kindness and compassion.

I don’t want to add to the ugliness in the world.

I fail at this all the time.

But I keep trying. I am not sure what else to do. 

Thanks for reading.
