be kind

 

I’ll be the first to admit: I’m quick to judge. It’s a a vice I’m trying very hard to fight, but it’s a subconscious tendency. We all size people up the minute we meet them — probably out of some instinctual developmental need to categorize things and understand them through previous experiences — but when I assume I know the whole story about someone, I’m often wrong and I’m ALWAYS blown away by the unbelievable battles that seemingly perfect and cheery people are fighting. We know a lot less about people than we realize, and it’s imperative that we always, always, always be kind.
