Have you ever had one of those days where your ability to be kind was sore­ly tested? Have you ever felt you were the target of someone’s disrespect? Sadly, in­stances like these can happen all too frequently in one’s life. When they do, the hurt you feel can be really strong. This is especially true when you have given nothing but kindness and respect. How do you deal with these situations?

It may be difficult, but having hope and keeping a positive attitude is the best way to weather these times. Being hopeful means knowing that no matter how bad things get, they will always get better. No matter the situ­ation or the person, your life will go on. Better times will come, and better people will enter your life. Don’t let your confidence in yourself and your life waver. Knowing you have value will help you to realize what someone else does or thinks has no bearing on your own worth. Hold your head high.

Show your strength by ignoring the rudeness and disrespect others may show you. In my opinion, inner strength is the character­istic that defines who we are. Let the negativ­ity of others wash over you like waves hitting a beach. No matter how hard they crash, the beach will still be there after the storm, and so will you. Being strong doesn’t mean you won’t get hurt sometimes, but it does mean that whatever pain comes will not be the end of you.

Your strength and self-confidence are your power. Use this power to live your best life, but also use it to make the lives of others better. Be kind to others and help them to see their own strength and value. Be proud of the person you are, but be humble. You can be an example for others without even trying. En­courage, don’t discourage. Positivity can be contagious.

Always strive to be humble and kind. When you are, you improve your life and the lives of those around you.
