Be kind, be brave, be yourself.

Be kind. Even when you’re really mad. Even when you’re the maddest you’ve ever been. Yell at someone when they’re horrible to you but no low blows. Apologize when you fall short. Pick someone else up when they do. Being kind is not the same as being nice; you don’t always have to be nice, but you should always try to be kind. Be brave. Try things that scare you. Speak up for yourself and your friends. Speak up to your friends when they’re causing you pain. If you try and fail, cry about it, then figure it out and move forward. Love people fearlessly, even after you’ve been hurt. Be earnest. Be present. Give yourself room to grow. Forgive yourself when things go wrong. Remember that tomorrow is a second chance. Be yourself. Be as much of yourself as you want to be, all the time. Be loud, be intense, be ambitious, be defensive, be sad, be angry, be unapologetic about anything you are that isn’t hurting other people — and when other people tell you that you’re hurting them, apologize and be better .

  2. Yes…I am so kind….even to have met a very intelligent person but with a little emotional Quotient…have tried my best to ask his forgiveness for a slight “offense” I made but still he showed his oozing confidence- he still showed his being bitter, hard, harsh and cruel….but still…no regrets having assessed him with the posts and linkages he posts and shared….so great in enhancing one’s knowledge…
