In A Cruel World That Is Trying To Make You Heartless, Stay Kind


In a world that makes everyone think that it is better to be heartless – stay nice. Be empathetic. Be compassionate. Be loving. Be patient. Don’t let the pain shape you into someone you don’t recognize. Be bigger than your pain. Be someone who regardless of the number of times love has left a bad taste in your mouth still believes in love. Be someone who is kind in an unkind world.

In a world that makes everyone feel like they have to do everything on their own – ask for help. Share. Give. Learn from others. Surround yourself with positive people, people who make you a better person. Don’t be ashamed to ask for advice, no one knows everything, and we can all use a little help. Nurture the heart you had before it was broken.

In a world that is killing your dreams – dare to dream. Be a believer. Have faith that one day you’ll be living the life you’ve always wanted for yourself. Because life can be difficult, but life is also kind and generous to those who appreciate its beauty. Be someone who sees the glass as half-full and doesn’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

In a world that is expecting you to be distant, aloof, and unattached – be present, attentive, and vulnerable. Be someone who cares. Be someone who is not afraid of showing their emotions. Dare to say ‘I love you’ more. Be open. Be someone who takes the risk instead of wondering what will happen. Be someone who knows that no matter how many times life will knock you down, you’ll rise every time stronger than the last time.

In a world full of lies – tell the truth. Most importantly, live your truth. Accept yourself as the person you are, with all your mistakes, imperfections and your wonderful qualities. Stop pretending you are someone you are not because you are already great at your uniqueness. Don’t live your life by society’s expectations, live it by your own rules and desires.

And finally, in a world that is constantly trying to change you – stay true to yourself. Spread love, spread kindness, be good to others. Because, in the end, it’s all that matters. In the end, you’ll only remember the good memories, the times when you fell in love, the happy times you had with your favorite people. Love is the most powerful emotion that there is, spread it more. And be kind. Always.
