Do not be afraid. They are afraid too.

Everyone you meet is afraid

It is not your fault

They are afraid of your smile

Are you assertive?

They are afraid of that too

They are afraid of your voice

Do you like to read?

They are afraid of that too

Please do not lose yourself in the process

Are you forgiving?

They are afraid of that too

Its okay;

Love them.

Forgive them.

Love them a little more.

They are afraid of that too

But they are you.

They are me.

Please do not lose yourself in the process

We are all on a learning curve

— — On the curve of compassion
