I’ve always believed that kindness never diminishes anyone. Be kind at every opportunity you are given, but also, be kind to yourself. If the kindness you show is met with resistance, or if your kindness is rebuffed, don’t feel bad. It is what it is. The person who refuses your kindness is the one who is diminished, not you. Remember this : the angrier the person, the deeper the hurt, and there are battles we know nothing about, so just be kind anyway; but for the moment, walk away and be kind to yourself too.
