Kindness and compassion are choices. Choose to be kind. Choose to be compassionate. Let others know that they are not alone and can get help. Practice empathy in kindness and feel empathy in compassion. Validate someone else’s existence and experience through your use of compassion.
Also practice self-kindness and compassion. Respect and value who you are. Just as someone else can hurt you, you can also hurt yourself. Watch how you interact with yourself in the ways you think and what you consume. Fill yourself with ideas, foods, thoughts, drinks, and perspectives that are healthy for you.
Choose to build on kindness and compassion in order for them to be who you are. You are kindness and you are compassion.
