You see them everywhere if you look closely. They’re the ones that shows everyone kindness, they always help where they can. They greet you with a smile, and you can – if you pay enough attention – catch them staring into nothing and daydream publicly.

You see them everywhere if you look closely. They’re the ones that shows everyone kindness, they always help where they can. They greet you with a smile, and you can – if you pay enough attention – catch them staring into nothing and daydream publicly. They are a special and unique type. They have buckets full of love and care to share, and most of the times they don’t get any back, but they won’t show the devastating it has. You don’t know how many times they cry themselves to sleep, wishing to find someone that will love them just right. They wake up the next day and will greet you with the same smile. They often get branded as antisocial and weird, and they take it like a champion. You don’t see how much they crave to be understood and loved. To be held dearly and treated like a prince/princess. You see, they may carry the fragile sticker, but they’re like an unbreakable glass container. Tough, but see through. They don’t want to be pitied, but they want to feel appreciated and plainly put, seen. See their effort, appreciate the extra mile they always go, and praise their achievements, how small or insignificant is irrelevant. They fight a daily battle of staying on track and set incredibly high goals for themselves. So if they trust you enough to tell you about it, you’d best make a big deal of it! Because if you don’t, eventually you will be on the outside wondering what went wrong. Look out for the “handle-with-care” stickers all around you ... and treat them with the care they deserve. You will be rewarded with a lover/friend/partner for the rest of your life! The End

    Again, Nvan, very well written. Most of the items below are simple issues of English's complex syntax.

    They’re the ones that shows everyone kindness, {"the ones who show everyone" also this is a comma splice: a comma should (almost) never be used to join 2 complete sentences -- use ; or a conjunction (e.g. "and" "but" etc. ) before the comma}
    and daydream publicly. {"daydreaming" }
    most of the times {"times" isn't wrong, but "time" is customary here}
    the devastating it has. {"the devastation that leaves/produces" or "the resulting devastation" }
    and plainly put, seen. {should have a comma after "and" also}
    achievements, how small {different punctuation would be better here, maybe ; or -- (dash) }
    you’d best make a big deal of it! {"best" here is too colloquial for an essay; almost makes it a threat}
    around you ... and {no space before ellipsis}

    Well expressed, insightful observation and advice. Write on.
    " ... but they won’t show the devastating it has." - I think you need devastation here, not devastating.

    Lovely little bit of advice that all of us can use. Cool
