Being a kind soul is both a gift and a curse. Kind souls want to believe in the good in people. Kind souls give far too many chances. Kind souls want to believe that others have a heart like theirs. Kind souls rarely get back what they give to others.
You know what else? They continue to believe even though they’ve been given every reason not to. They act tough to protect their heart but they aren’t tough. Not at all. But they are wiser. They have learned from pain and aren’t as quick to jump into anything. But they still believe. That right there, is beautiful.
