“Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.” – Mother Teresa
Although kindness is encouraged by everyone and is known around the world, sometimes it’s really hard to be kind. We all know it. In fact, at some points in our lives, it feels easier to be unkind, especially when we are having a bad day.
We tend to be unkind when it feels as if the world is working against us. Or our self-esteem may be shaky, making it sometimes hard for us to be kind towards others.
But underneath we are all vulnerable. As what Plato once said, “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.” If we think about it, we’d probably understand that horrible people do horrible things because deep down that person already feels terrible about themselves.
Remember, though, that what goes around comes around! It is shown that being kind to others will make us happy and as well as themselves. And makes other people be kind also.
Being kind is simple! You can easily give a smile to someone when walking pass them. Or buying someone’s Starbucks order in a drive thru. It doesn’t have to cost anything either, what’s important is that it’s an act of expression of showing how much you care for another person.
You may question why we should act kindly towards others. Well if you can’t already see that it’s just nice to be nice, maybe you’ll see that when acting kindly towards others, it creates a more positive atmosphere.
“Being kind isn’t always easy or convenient. But it has the potential to change everything.” – Cap Walkers
If you haven’t noticed yet, Tulare Western is having a Dude Be Nice week. T-shirts of DBN are only $15. There is also a STAR BOOTH were you can send someone a star that has kindly words 🙂
Small or big kindly acts wouldn’t just make someone day, it also makes you feel happy inside, because feeling that you know that you did something kind makes you want to be kind forever.
