I've been thinking a bit about kindness lately and I wondered how you all feel about it. Does your path require you to be kind? Do your deities? And what's the difference between being kind and being a doormat?
My sister and I have both experienced being kind to others to the extent that we are taken advantage of. I still do my best to be kind as my path does require it but I've also learned that it's ok to have boundaries and that I need to take care of myself to be able to take care of others. Unfortunately my sister still gives so much to others that she's often exhausted to the point of being ill.
I'm very interested in all of your thoughts on the subject.
