Say It With Kindness
"What do you mean, it isn't true?"
"It isn't yet at its best until it's kind."
"But, it can still be true..."
"Is incomplete still true? Is it still true if it does not return the best possible result?"
"It's the results that I want, I'm just in a hurry. I don't have time to be kind!"
"Maybe. But also, maybe you don't have time NOT to be kind. Think of the reactions. Think of the changes. Think about whether someone feels resentment instead of contentment. No matter how well you say it, won't it sound better with kindness?"
