You can always choose to add kindness

You may not be able to control what others do, but you can always choose to add kindness to the world instead of hate.

You can choose compassion instead of disdain — remembering that everyone is fighting their own battles.

You can choose constructive words instead of callous criticism.

You can choose to raise others up in earnest instead of bringing them down.

One kind word, one extended hand, one smile, one generous act at a time — that’s how you can make the world better.

There’s nothing stopping you from doing this.
