Tenderness. What a beautiful concept. We think about passion, love, kindness and gentleness, but how often do we consider the idea of tenderness? Tenderness seems to be a gentle, nurturing kind of love and caring with a little something extra thrown in.
Tenderness is what we might feel for a soft, tiny newborn. Or a person fragile, in pain in their sickbed.
Tenderness draws from a different well of emotion; from somewhere deep in our heart, that unselfish place where we give without considering the cost to ourselves.
What a little-used emotion tenderness is. Oh, to feel more tenderhearted toward those I am angry with. Or to feel more tenderhearted even toward those I love so that I develop a less self-centered type of love toward them
