Why The Kindest Souls Have Suffered The Darkest Pasts

For the kind-hearted, every day in our lives is a new lesson learned.

We have come to the realization that not all people have an equal life – some are happy, while others suffer a lot more. We are all tested in life, someway, somehow. We will always face tests that determine our next experiences and who we are.

Have you ever noticed that the person who smiles the most is the saddest? The people who are nursing broken hearts are the kindest people you will meet. Kind people detest seeing others hurt because they know what it’s like to be unloved, to be sad, to be broken, and to be alone. They are the ones who do what they can to help others, so no one else feels the same pain they feel every day.

When you’ve lived a painful life, you find joy in being kind. You learn to give the love and compassion that you’ve always longed for.

I grew up in a tough environment. I don’t have a lot of happy memories; my life has been an emotional roller coaster. I have been battered and bruised physically, mentally, and emotionally,  but I am still standing. I have been through hell and back, and despite all the hardships, as I grew older, I realized that I just wanted people to feel good. I wanted people to experience a different reality than I did when I was growing up. I wanted to smile at people as they walked by, and I wanted to make a difference. I realized that showing kindness made others feel good, and it also made me feel good.

We have learned to see the light in the world because we have also seen the darkness.

A kind-hearted person has the power to light up a dark room because they use positivity to create light. We were born in dark times and lived under difficult conditions, but we always found a way out. We have suffered through some of the most horrifying moments one can ever imagine. When you have been hurt your whole life, you want nothing more than to live in happiness and joy. Kind souls are the ones that have suffered immensely; therefore, they have a different outlook towards life.

The kindest people have seen every facade of life; they know the art of transforming negativity into positivity in order to bring joy to those around them.

The kindest souls have seen others rip their heart to pieces numerous times. They understand what sadness, disappointment, loss, and failure truly feels like because it has happened to them on a very deep level. This makes it easier for them to listen to those who’ve suffered from similar experiences and understand how they’re feeling. And it’s something they never want others to feel, especially when it’s people they care most about.

People like myself, who have had to overcome emotional hardships, have learned to be stronger and more resilient. With the amount of bad luck we have experienced, with harmful situations, family concerns, destruction, and poverty, we see the struggle as a learning process. Against all odds, I’ve learned to survive and thrive. Every failure gave us a new ray of hope to start fresh.

The kindest people aren’t born this way – their choices and tests have helped make them this way. They have endured the toughest storms without drowning. To the kind, anything is possible.

Being bitter is easy, being negative is easy, and giving up is easy. Standing tall and remaining kind despite all of the adversity in life requires strength. When it comes to either choosing survival or letting a test defeat us, the choice is ours. strongest.
