The truth is, you never really know what someone else is going through. Everyone around us has a chapter they don’t read out loud and may be fighting a battle we may know nothing about. A little more kindness and a little less judgement can go a long way. So in a world where you can be anything, be kind, especially when it doesn’t cost a damn thing!
