True to Ourselves


Dave writes in People with good hearts:

Being kind to each other doesn't have to interfere with being true to ourselves; please let's do the extra work to find out where the anger is coming from, and try not to be angry at someone, esp not me.  [Scripting News]

I'd change his first sentence a little to read: "Being kind to each other is being true to ourselves."  I say that because if you can listen to what you know you should do (i.e. be true to yourself), you'll be kind.  Is easy to take things personal that aren't and that lowers to level of discourse considerably.
