Be Kind.

If I were my own best friend I would tell myself to…

remember a favorite quote:

“Be kind. For everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.”

-Plato

***I always try to remember this when someone cuts me off in traffic, has unkind words to say, or seems to be really angry or unpleasant. I have no idea what is happening in their world and prefer to give them the benefit of the doubt. We all have battles; the least we can do is be kind.

  1. just a good reminder. this one will stick with me. the image alone is so beautiful and memorable! you are wise beyond your years, my friend.

    • This quote sticks with me too… although I wish it was my FIRST thought when someone cuts me off in traffic, instead of the third or fourth (but at least it’s in there, right?).
