More thoughts on kindness. . .

I came across this while looking for my "daily quotes" section above my blog and wanted to pass it along to y'all, Faithful Readers. . .

People are unreasonable, illogical and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest person with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest person with the smallest mind.
Think big anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack if you help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you might get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you've got anyway.

--Dr. Kent M. Keith

It is such a wonderful credo to live by. . .and not easy by any means.

Hi Passion . It's so good to see you here again. I noticed your post over on your blog yesterday but never made my way back to post my own encouragement and prayers for you. Take it from someone who has had to seek help as well, it's good. It's all good. It may seem scary and painful at first, but you WILL look back and go, "Damn, that was smart and brave of me to do it!" You are deeply admired and would be very much missed.

Just saying "Hi" and admiring your profile and your resolution...I wish I could be there, but I am not...yes I am bad for being on this site, but I was confused and still searching...trying to be good anyway. Wonderful post - another "printable" one...

Hello Ella and thank you so much for dropping into the Grotto!

I truly don't believe you're bad, or that I am bad either. Certainly not because we are here on this site trying to make some sort of meaningful connection with others.

This site, when you strip away all the penis photos and raw propositions, is about loneliness and hope. And for the same reason the Internet exploded the way it has, and AdultFriendFinder succeeds because we all just want to know we're not alone and maybe. . .just maybe we matter.

Again, I'm so glad you came by!
