In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Well, I Never….”

Tell us about something you’ve done that you would advise a friend never to do.

never, ever be unkind. because as much as it hurts someone else it has hurt me too in the realization that something i did and said caused pain to someone else. and while i can apologize, i can never undo that hurt, because there may be healing but there can never be no scar from that.

and it just makes me contemplate how quickly i move through life and don’t always take people’s feelings into consideration. i am such a hurry to complete a task that i often overlook how i need others help to reach goals. i can alienate people by being in such a hurry that i don’t stop and listen and just be with them.

being kind lasts longer than the moments i rush through.
