Always (always!) be a little kinder than necessary

‘Always be a little kinder than necessary’ is pretty much my life mantra… But oh my goodness I got such a schooling in it yesterday.

I was feeling pretty shitty, to be honest. Anxious and exhausted and grumpy and sorry for myself – entirely wrapped up in my head and also recognizing that people with actual anxiety disorders feel like this all the time and I honestly don’t know how you do it…

Anyway, back to my schooling. I went into one of the local shops and the sales person there (who I know to be generally brusque) was – I felt – really rude to me. And as I left, I thought, “she has no idea what I’m going through… that really threw me off. We really have to always be a little kinder than necessary.”

I got home and vented to my husband, who told me that the woman who was rude to me is going through chemo… And I was like, ohhhhhhhhhhhhkay. *I’m* the one who needs this lesson. Again.

And then today I saw this beautiful illustration by @lizandmollie and wanted to share it – and my embarrassing tale – so that I hopefully learn the lesson. Fingers crossed! 🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼
