Normal people don’t choose to make cruelty a part of how they are –
Cruel treatment either makes us cruel in our ignorance of how it affects us, and so how our cruelty in attempts to elevate ourselves affects others, or, we choose kindness and face ourselves and our own pain instead of trying to pass it on.
Cruelty becomes normalized by people choosing to turn away in the face of it.
Be gentle and kind on your demons, and you will learn how to be kind to the demons of those you feel persecuted by.
Cruelty cannot breath in kindness.
But you got to be cruel to be kind sometimes…
