    A Gift From My Heart

    As a very young child, I was brought up by two very loving parents. As many very young children do, I had a stuffed animal that was a very special friend to me. It was a little monkey and I would sleep with this little monkey every night and hold him tight in my arms as I would...

    I try and I think everybody should too.

    Maybe the reason people are always so angry and mean is because nobody is nice to them.

    that trying to be kind and good to everyone, does not make them respect you.

    It's SO difficult sometimes,

    some people were so cruel to me, just because they thought it was funny. I've found that being nice is always best, as responding to their cruelty never ends well.

    You never know what someone's going through,

    so I try to make sure I treat every single person as I would like to be. No matter how little the impact you have on someone's day, if it's positive, it counts for something :)

    I do make the effort to be kind to others.

    I am often much more kind than I should be to those that are not so kind. But, I have limits and kindness should not give anyone the impression that I am a complete pushover.

    My religion is kindness.

    Some people believe that to be moral you have to be religious and that is the farthest thing from true. I don't claim to be any religion, I just strive to be a good person. Love and kindness is so essential, but it's what the world lacks the most. I may not grow up to do much...

    Sometimes I Fail

    I try to be kind.  I try to show love to all I meet, even if it's just a smile or a friendly greeting. Sometimes I fail. I do have a temper, and when it slips the leash things can get ugly.  Sometimes I'm so tangled up in my own mess that I can't do anything for anyone else...

    or mean to someone for no reason I'm a very compassionate person and I will be very nice to you I'll give you a second chance when needed and sometimes even more chances. But please don't make me angry it takes away from my compassionate side and I don't really like it.

    why I am this way. I was always nice, polite and kind to everyone I met. So was I raised I guess and so is my character. Plus seeing so many rude and agressive people I realy think there should be more kind people around so I stay as that what I am
