To continue learning, start with kindness.
We all still have a great deal to learn and to apply as we grow as individuals, as groups, as communities and as a society. Many of the unlearned lessons for us will only begin with an open mind, a humbled appreciation of others and the genuine actions of expressed kindness.
Kindness opens a relational opportunity to truly begin to know another and to comprehend their perspective as one that you can learn from. Engaging with others to be genuinely kind is a sign of great strength, as you chose to lead with it.
Kindness = Strength.
“For what can even the most malicious person do if you keep showing kindness and, if given the chance, you gently point out where they went wrong—right as they are trying to harm you?” — Marcus Aurelius —
