Be gentle

I say “be gentle” a lot. I read somewhere that toddlers find it easier to understand a positive instruction than a negative instruction, and that sounds reasonable, so “be gentle” is becoming almost a catchphrase. 

And it’s good catchphrase, I’m happy with it. 

Be gentle.

We should maybe all be a little gentler.

To ourselves. 

To our loved ones. 

To our colleagues.

Our acquaintances. 

Strangers. 

Everyone. 

Be gentle. 

Be kind.
