We are allowed to invite kindness into our lives and to say no to people, places, and things who aren't kind, gentle, and nurturing to our souls. Sadly, many of us did not learn this growing up. We learn it as adults.
It is not only OK but important to invite kindness into our lives. Surround yourself with kind, honest, gentle people and offer kindness to others. Attention to kindness will change your experience here on this earth.
