“Soft-hearted people are not fools, they know what people did to them but they forgave again and again because they have beautiful hearts.” – Anonymous
I believe that this quote reflects on me so much. Even though people can be selfish and cruel, there are always people in the world that will always care for them no matter what the situation is. If you run into someone with a soft heart, you will never be pushed to the side.
There was a point where my best friend and I had a fight and she turned some people, including my friends, against me. Yes, it hurt my feelings badly, because we’ve been through so much together. She began talking about me to different people, but as soon as she needed something, I was still right there. Some people might say, “That’s stupid,” “You’re weak,” or “Why would you do that?” Sometimes, I don’t even know how to respond, or I’ll just say, “That’s just the way I am.”
There’s nothing wrong with having a soft-heart, but I have to hold my guard up to certain people that want to hurt me purposely. It’s not fun to have a person you love or strongly care about just treat you like a doormat but you have to love or care about yourself before loving or caring about anyone else, no matter who it is.
