An Argument for Softening Up On People

Just because I’m tough doesn’t mean I’m not human

A little rough on the outside and you really have no idea what to do with it. It takes a ton of work to get to the good stuff but once you do, I like to think it’s worth it.

I’m tough. I’m resilient. I can take it. I won’t mind if you drop me on the floor? Yes. Yes, I will. Please don’t do it.

My resiliency is not an opportunity for you to be an asshole.

We need care. We need softness. We need you to do the hard work to get to the seeds.
