Those With Kind Hearts

We use the word "love" way to often.

Those With Kind Hearts

I'll always have a tough exterior. I learned how to do that from my dad--how to make everyone think you're tough when you may not be as tough as you seem. But another thing I learned from my dad is how to keep a kind heart in a world that just wants to tear everyone apart. He taught me how to be gentle and loving even when I want to be hurtful and cruel. He taught me how to control my emotions in a way that makes me the better person. He taught me to make my kind heart a prominent quality--just like he does.

My dad taught me how to be kind in tough situations as well as to have a big heart. My big heart is filled with love for animals and people until they hurt my heart. Those who think I'm mean are the ones who have hurt me or don't deserve my kindness anymore--they're the people I don't want to have faith in any more.

People with kind hearts lead with their emotions. Even when it isn't love; when they've been hurt, they will respond with emotions before they think. They lead with their hearts, not their heads.

Those with kind hearts love all things. They're the people who see the good in everyone and want to find the good in everyone. We're the people you see crying over literally every animal they come across and cry even harder when something bad happens to that animal.

People with kind hearts aren't sensitive or emotional beings; however, people are led to believe--and sometimes we don't help that because we can occasionally act like we are the weakest of the bunch. But the truth of the matter is, people with kind hearts are the strongest. We put ourselves into situations that lead to heartbreak and hurt more times than we care to count, all because we believe in people and we believe in ourselves. We always hope for the best and try our hardest to make that happen, but then we have to face heartbreak when what we tried so hard to make happen, doesn't actually work out. We then have to force a smile and try to tough through it even though we are hurting because we need to be there for everyone else.

People with kind hearts have many layers. Mainly, however, we are lovers and fighters simultaneously. We're passionate and care way to much. We lead with our emotions, yet we never wear our hearts on our sleeve. We're always going to try to make someone smile and always try to make the happy ending a reality. We're perfectionists and use the word "love" way to much. But that's just what happens with a person with a kind heart.

Freshly popped buttered popcorn in your lap and a glass full of crisp Coca-Cola is at your side. All the lights are turned off and you are tucked into a cozy blanket. You have the whole day off and no responsibilities besides refilling your popcorn bucket.

What was usually buried at the bottom of my purse has now become a pocket essential — and I know I'm not alone in that.

It used to be something I'd use if I happened to be at a restaurant that ran out of soap in their bathroom, but now it's almost more essential to have on-hand at all times than my cell phone.

The decision-makers of Yale's law students have invested in therapy dog sessions in order to reduce stress. In 2011, Yale Law Library had a sign-out sheet for their certified library dog. The 30-minute sessions were equipped with unconditional, stress-busting puppy love.

Law Librarian Blair Kauffman stated that the free, three-day pilot pet therapy program at Yale Law Library launched as "a positive addition to current services offered by the library."

I have been working at Dunkin' Donuts for over two years, and during this time, I have progressed from regular crew member to crew coach, and finally, to shift leader. Among my great skills involving the job is my ability to deal with stressful situations, including awful customers. My boss has continuously pointed out the fact that I am able to handle these people with grace and kindness. She herself often finds that she gets snippy with rude customers, but somehow I am able to keep a straight face through these tough times.

Let's be real here — sometimes essential oils and acknowledging all five senses (touch, see, hear, smell, taste) just don't cut it when you need to cope. It's those days when you have so much rage that you don't even know what to do with yourself, or those days when you physically cannot stop crying because of the most suffocating sadness, or all those other days when you are craving healthy coping mechanisms that actually work.

But before I let you in, we need to continue being real. I hope you are comforted with the knowledge that before I uncovered (or, even wanted to uncover) healthy mechanisms, I also went through my drought of horrible coping mechanisms. I have, and sometimes continue, to fall short of genuinely trying to help myself. It takes a lot of courage, and energy, to genuinely try and help yourself.
