It's easier to be cruel, fake, dishonest in this world. Why? Because since the time we're born, that's what we're designed to be. People teach us to mistrust others, for they always have bad intentions and will take advantage of us. Yet no one teaches them not to lie or to cheat. It should be the other way around, but who will ever have the guts to go against the grain? It's so much easier to just stick to what everybody else is doing, right?

The challenge lies in being kind to others. In forgiving. That doesn't mean you have to put yourself down in order to lift others up (been there, done that), but to set yourself free from hatred and bitterness. It's never easy, but that's the price paid for being a kind person in a bad world.
