Sharon Salzberg: Kindness is Great

Today’s gentle reminder: strength without kindness makes for a hard world. Kindness without strength makes of you a dishrag. Strength, compassion and kindness combined elevates your character and thus your choices.

While my point of view certainly diverges from the popular current feminist narrative (I’m a dishrag, asshole, give me what I want!) I try to always respect another’s dignity, even if they are offensive.

Call it identity management 101.
