• Kindness is often mistaken for softness and let me tell you, friends....that is a mistake you don't want to make. Kind people are not born that way, they do not stumble into it, kind people are forged in fire and darkness and imploding stars...they have steel cores. Throw a punch and you're going to break your hand.

      Fear not the raging bear, whose nature it is to intimidate its foe. Fear the serpent, for its very silence is lethal. The bear gestures, making itself larger than it truly is. The snake hides in plain sight, not to be seen. Not out of fear, but out of cunning.

      if you have been truly broken, but still have the strength to be kind and caring of others, then you deserve love deeper than the ocean itself
    • EliezerBenYehuda
      Kind people are often people who have seen a lot of bad in their life and they're looking to do good. With that, dickheads are often people who have been treated too good and now they're convinced they have that privilege to be assholes.

      There's a difference between common courtesy, and going out of your way to help and be kind to everyone you can, they're talking about people that are the latter of the two.

      Everyone in comment section shitting on the post clearly doesn’t know the kind of person it’s referring to. It’s one thing to be decent, it’s another to be good, but to be kind in the way that it’s talking about takes a special person. I’ve met 3 and they are the pinnacle of what a person should be.

      Kind people know the pain. They waddled in it and made it their own. They vow to pull anyone they see in the pit out to safety. But if you try to push them into the pit of misery they will pull you in with them and watch you suffer.
