Would it…

Would the world be a better place if I were kind and compassionate to everyone?

Maybe.

Would I be happy?

No.

I don’t think that everyone deserves my compassion.

And to put my heart and soul on the table just to have someone mash it into the ground…

It may be in my power to change the world, but it is not my responsibility. The only responsibility I willingly will take is to treat everyone in a polite way and to keep myself in a space of peace and happiness.

Toxicity has no place in my heart, because I am not infinitely capable of enduring cruelty.

Would the world be a better place if I were kind and compassionate to everyone?

Maybe.

But I would run the risk of seeing my heart harden and my soul turn to dust.

And I have yet to decide if that sacrifice could ever make the world a better place.
