The trait of kindness is one of the most benevolent, but strangely, can also be volatile.
Perhaps it's by our collective hubris that we simply take kindness for granted, as we assume
we are perfectly capable to sharing it. But kindness is deceptive to those who try to wield it,
as it takes a lot of mindfulness and experience to know just what kind of kindness is best.
While it comes in multiple forms, there are some forms of kindness that can leave one
vulnerable to being taken advantage of, kindness that can be an enabler for another's
self-destruction, or kindness that can go too far and spoil the recipient into adopting an
unrealistic standard on others. Sometimes, the kindest thing to do is put aside the
pleasantries, be assertive, and like a true friend, push others in a direction
they don't want to go.

Kindness is plentiful,

But kindness can be tough.

It's not just flowing with the current...

...But staying rooted and asserting others to sustain the right path.

Oftentimes the thing that draws me to a certain picture is the color scheme, and this does not disappoint! ^^

Love what you did with the water flows :)
"spoil the recipient into adopting an unrealistic standard on others."
Yeah, that's one of the dangers... :/
I myself have a lot of kindness, so this description was very interesting to read for me.
Yeah I agree with what you said.
"be assertive", "staying rooted"... I love how you further reflected Fluttershy in those parts :D
Also "flowing with the current", refencing the artwork... wonderful!
In addition to the artworks, your descriptions are art, too! ^.^ And it's SO great!

The later ones in this series remind me a lot of the lush scenery in Trine, but this one especially. I need more of this in my life. Everyone does.
