So true and I can attest to your wise words because I have been doing my best to put them into practice.
The ones around me whom I love and perhaps do not love enough at times I am being generous and kind to.
Those others who I might not care for so much I am trying hard to practise kindness to.
To the others I am being courteous and polite but keep a relative distance so as not to be too harsh.
It does make for a certain peace of mind and a maturity I can say, some selfcontrol, and a weightlessness. An easing of the conscience if I hurt someone's feelings, maybe?
Definitely a certain maturity.
