In the end, only kindness matters by Jennifer

Someone may respond to you in a negative way you didn’t expect. Understand that the response may not have been caused by you, so instead of taking it personally, show understanding and compassion for their situation and see how you can help.

Everyone responds in different ways, and the experiences they’ve had recently can affect that. Their response may have been caused by them having had a sleepless night, or come home exhausted from school or work, or something hasn’t turned out the way they wanted it to – none of which were caused by you or are anything you have any control over to influence.
