If you made a mistake, apologize. If you are thankful, say it. If you are confused, ask questions. If you learn something, teach it. If you are stuck, ask for help. If you are wrong, admit it, sooner. If you can unselfishly give, give. If you love someone, tell them, now.

When you win, be kind. When you are ignored, be kind. When you are stuck, be kind. When you are upset, be kind. When disappointed, be kind. When you are in doubt, be kind. When you are scared, be kind. Being kind is not a sign of weakness. Kindness will always serve you well.
