What does it mean to be kind-
The meaning of kindness is being understanding of everyone’s opinion and not judging anyone because of their view and being your own person and forming your own view
- Erin Jordan
I love everything about this statement. Everything in the world right now is just so crazy and perceived as black and white but i'm grey. I'm in the middle and I feel like it’s such a great place to be. I feel like being a city girl is perceived as being a mean and rude bitch that is unapologetically themselves. Sorry to tell you this bestie but that just ain't it! As a City Girl let me let you in on a little secret. It's nice to be kind, it's nice to be thoughtful and it's just not nice to be a mean ass bitch. Nobody wants to be friends with someone who's like that. If that's your defensive mechanism then sure, I get it but once those walls are down it's go time put on a smile pick up your head and walk like your the baddest bitch in the damn room. Your smarts can only get you so far in life so your personally will take you where your brain won’t. People don’t realize the impact others have on their life. I remember a few months back during quarantine I went to a protest to stand up for what I believe in and one of my best friends Emily Barreira surprised me and stood with me. I will never forget that moment for the rest of my life. So with that said Emily, if you're reading this, thank you for being you and always having my back. Her choice to just join me will forever have a major impact on me and that's on being a great friend and kindness. Be aware, be kind, be nice WE ALL need it. Be kind to your family, your friends, your teachers were all going through something that's deeper than the surface. Have an open mind, let people have their opinions and you have yours. It's okay to respectfully disagree. When your friends talk, listen don’t think about your response just listen we all need an ear now and again…….
