In a world full of savages, should we face it with defensive attitudes in order to protect ourselves or should we have an open heart full of love and forgiveness? 

It's easier and almost natural to gravitate towards survival or sacrifice, but it is possible to reach equilibrium when you know your worth. It's important to see the value in ourselves and examine our intentions. A lot of our actions stem from our need for acceptance and lack of boundaries. At the end of the day, be kind, sow seeds, but if you say "yes" to others make sure you are not saying "no" to yourself.
