I had an experience this past week that made my heart pound. It made me wish I had thicker skin. It made me wish I was stronger.

At first.
After I processed it...and continue to process it, I have concluded that my initial reaction goes against my nature.
I am a kind person. I treat others with kindness. I am strong. The stronger I get, the kinder I treat people. I don't need thicker skin, I need to physically and emotionally walk away from unkindness.
So, this experience has caused me to be kinder to others, and kinder to myself.
