A soft person. A gentle person. A gentle and compassionate soul. A rare person in the world.
When the whole world is hardening you and telling you to toughen up… Can you still be a soft, sweet and kind person?
Someone who’s heart is softer than most others, quick to apologize, take responsibility and take the initiative to take care of things without out blame, even if they are not at fault.
They’ve been through some of the most destructive experiences life has to offer, but yet they still manage to put their glowing hearts back together leaving the dark bitterness behind them.
Do these rare soft-hearted people need protecting or are they, in fact, more brave and stronger than most by continually standing up to the societal norms?
The deep rich love of soft and gentle souls.
The kind of person that instinctually jumps to help those who are struggling.
Someone who is not opposed to some suffering themselves to benefit another.
Those who are always willing to talk things out and are sensitive enough to ask twice if you are ok.
Their profound care is endless and your comfort and well-being are always on their conscious.
They have wide senses and experience life fully but are told they are overly-sensitive and fragile.
After failing many times in life and with people, they have built a peaceful inner resilience unlike most.
You find them soaking in deep joy instead of looking to go get happy.
Often seen radiating light throughout congregations of dull concealed essences.
Crying that comes from an intrinsic broad empathy for humanity.
People that refuse to build a hard shell around themselves, despite knowing their kindness can be returned with hurtful aggression.
The ones who always forgive you, even when you don’t deserve it or haven’t earned their forgiveness.
They may not be all that smiley, but they will always return a smile for you.
Although they may give into emotions more easily and sometimes cling to sadness longer, the soft glow of their hearts has endured a lifetime of being turned down, exploited, neglected, misunderstood and treated as weak.
Having a deep-seated peace and quiet strength that gives them the power of positivity in the worst of circumstances.
The person rooted in service to others and who becomes as strong as needed for someone, when that is what is needed in that moment.
Often taken for granted, but not necessarily exploited.
Not always self-deprecating or self-disregarding, but selfless when available.
They don’t seek attention for themselves because their attention is on your happiness and security.
The bravest of all who are not ignorant about being seen as weak and yet stay true to themselves.
When hardened hearts may break, the soft-hearted have the softness in their hearts to bend, yield and give to endure.
Not many are brave enough or have the strength it takes to stay soft, open, bare, gentle, loving, caring, compassionate and empathetic in a world ridden with hardness, greed, bitterness, hostility, cruelty, animosity, bravado, indulgence and self-centric gratification.
“Be soft, don’t let the world make you hard. Be gentle, don’t let the people make you difficult. Be kind, don’t let the realities of life steal your sweetness and make you heartless.” ~Nurudeen Ushawu
