If you are a cute bespectacled, weighing forty kilograms, then nothing remains for you, as always and with everyone to be a polite, kind and forgiving person. But in this case, your forgiveness and peacefulness are not merit, they are your weakness. And weakness is always attractive to those who plan attacks. Nothing provokes aggression as the irresponsibility of the object of aggression.
With power, we can forgive people. Kindness should be a quality deserved by our strength. All really strong people are good people, because they can afford kindness. But nothing else. Weakness is a humiliating state, so it can never be voluntarily shown.
