Seriously. Is there any other way to live?

Oh sure, add in “do some kindness.” Or stuff like that.

But really, don’t hurt anyone and don’t take shi* of anyone?

It’s a good start.

    Have to add the glass over flowing spin to this Carol.
    …and leave it all better for you being there.

    It is easy to show kindness but it is very difficult to feel the one when one is needing.

  3. LOVE Kathy Bates. And I love her advice! And I love you for sharing it, it is perfect!

  4. The problem is figuring out how to not take any shit without lashing out and doing harm. Once you learn to walk that line, you’re on the right course.
