“People are unrealistic, illogical, and self-centered. Love them anyway.”
― Mother Teresa
Mother Teresa has and always will be an individual that inspires me to stay kind despite some very cruel arrows bulldozed my way.
I’ve endured backstabbing friends, toxic family members that damaged my self-esteem, and some rude strangers flicking me off on the highway. I’ve also battled depression and anxiety my whole life as well as ‘faith drowning’ events like my dad’s cancer diagnosis.
Still, I’ve learned that no matter how shitty a person is or how horrid a situation can be, anger will result in zero solutions EVERY time. Instead, I’ve finally started to heal my wounds by committing to acts of kindness daily and spacing myself away from any toxicity that threatens my well-being and peace.

Remember this: We can’t fix people or heal situations all the time, but we CAN control how we react to them. This may be especially difficult when we experience heart-breaks in our lives that cause us to deplete our faith, but it’s important to do some introspection here. We can either chose to add to the toxicity of a sometimes cruel world or we can be an iota of light that makes even a stranger’s day better just by smiling and genuinely asking how their day’s going.
So, who or what inspires you to keep your compassion when things get rough? How can you handle toxic people without losing your mojo?
Kill em’ and your world with kindness I always say. For more inspiration, read Mother Teresa quotes here.
