Love a soft person. The kind whose heart breaks over puppies and injured children. Someone who cries over sad endings to movies and feels deep joy over happy ones. Someone who acknowledges your soul instead of your heart because they know that your soul is the center of your universe and your heart is just one star. The sort of person who is told they are over sensitive because they have a more fragile, easily wounded heart.
Love a soft person. A human being who always has a kind smile for everyone, even when they do not get a smile back in return. Someone whose heart breaks over the condition of this world. Someone who always has a gentle word for those who have received the worst news they could in that moment. A person who cannot look at someone suffering and do nothing to help out.
Love a soft person. The ones who are positive, even in the worst of circumstances. Someone whose strength is not in bravado, but in their quiet moments. Someone who is strong for others because that is what is needed in that moment. Someone who is the moon that soothes instead of the sun that burns. Someone who sees the very best in people even when you think they aren’t worth it. The kind of person who always wants to do the best for those they love.
Love a soft person. The kind who looks at someone who is struggling, whether it is to open a door, or have lost their keys and will do everything they can to help out. Someone who would rather suffer themselves than let anyone else down. Someone who tries, not because it is what they have to do, but because they want to do the best by you. A human being that is always willing to communicate and talk things through.
Protect this soft person. These people are becoming endangered with words like ‘toughen up’ and ‘they’re going to take advantage of you’. Someone who is an easy target for ridicule because their heart is softer than most others around. Someone who is quick to apologise and fix things regardless of blame or fault.
Be a soft person. Be a cushion in a world full of rocks and hard places. Be a gentle soul where everyone else is jaded. Be that person. Because someone out there needs someone like you.
