Gentle

We never know for sure what is going on in somebody else's head.  We never know for sure if our words are going to hit a sore spot.  Those of us who have been blessed with an awareness of the fragility of those around us need to take care.  We need to be gentle, compassionate, caring for those around us. 

Acknowedging that we all have issues, all have soft spots will allow all of us to become better people.  Deliberately showing care and compassion for those whose wounds we know can help those wounds heal.

Well said. It's important to remind ourselves of this - it can be easy to forget that our actions, no matter how trivial they may seem, can have a real impact on those we come into contact with.

So true...... I think we often forget that we are human and deep down we all just want to be loved and accepted.
