Being rude is not “keeping it real” it’s being rude.
You may get an adrenaline and dopamine rush from mouthing off and cutting down someone, but do a gut check after that dopamine high drops. Do you still feel so great from roasting someone? Or do you just feel burned?
Being kind is a much better way to be. Kindness always makes you feel great. It makes everyone you bestow it upon feel great, and it usually inspires them to share kindness as well.
The best way is the kind way. I’m just “keeping it real” here.
