Most of us watch the news, and at times we get a poor taste in our mouth with the realization that our world is just bad sometimes. From disrespect to bullying to murders it's just very sad.
Candace Cameron Bure recently visited the newsroom of "Fox & Friends" to talk about her new book, "Kind is the New Classy." However, she went further into what the book is really about and what happened in her life that brought her to write this "classy" book.
Candace is not one to shy away from her strong Christian and Conservative values; it especially showed when she was on "The View."
Even when others have different viewpoints, it's important to always be kind and respectful.
"What happened? There are not many kind people out there sometimes," co-host Steve Doocy said.
"It feels like it because I feel like when we turn on the news and flip on our computers and the TV screen we see all the tragedy and the heartbreak that's going on in the world it's so divisive politically," Candace said.
"That's really why I wrote the book because I wanted to put that spotlight back on kindness," she continued.
Candace truly believes that it starts with the individual. We all have a choice to be positive, to be kind, to be respectful; we need to choose to be those things.
While it might not always be easy to choose those things, Candace has been a great role model to us all. She strives to be kind every sing day, even when she was in situations that weren't always favorable to her. She chose to be kind.
"Did something happen in your life where you said, 'I got to write a book about this;' is it based on what you learned along the way?" co-host Ainsley Earhardt asked.
"Of course! A lot of my time on 'The View' was an inspiration for this book," Candace said with a laugh. "Well, you know, I really did enjoy being on the show but it was tough at times, it's tough to be the only voice at a table that only has one specific viewpoint."
At the end of the day, she had a goal: to be kind and respectful. But, how did she do it?
"That's what I heard from people the most was like, 'How do you stay calm when you feel like people are attacking you?'" Candace said. "Let me write down the tools that helped."
When Candace was later asked if kindness was shown as weakness, she had a striking response: "Kindness is not weakness, only if you allow it to be weakness."
Candace revealed her greatest tools while on the show. Compassion and the big kicker: what life events happened to others that they might have this viewpoint for a reason?
Asking this, Candace then said, "That will soften my heart to understand where they're at."
What a fantastic point! Not everyone has been dealt the same hand in this life, but with compassion and respect, we can at least understand and help where we can.
