There is a lot going on in the world these days, and not all of it is easy on the mind. There is not much we can do to make things better, but kindness helps.
We don’t have to try and put effort big enough to move mountains, but it’s important that we start somewhere. It’s necessary for us to tackle the really big issues one step at a time. But remember to show kindness as well.
Kindness goes a long way every place in the world. It’s that helpfulness that makes people feel better, in the process of putting in the effort to make the world a better place.
Kindness is everyone’s responsibility and it grows the more we show it. How does that happen? People tend to monitor those around them and copy their behaviors. A little kindness in one town can multiply and grow into acts of kindness all over the country and world.
How can you be kind and show kindness?
- Offer to help your friends
- Be there when your family members need your help
- Volunteer in the community
- Have kindness and compassion in your heart
This is nit to say that you need to be kind all of the time. No, there is a time to be kind to others and a time to be attentive to your needs and those in your home.
I’ve been helpful and kind to people before and they did not seen to appreciate my help or acknowledge it, and that left me with a bad feeling about the experience. But that didn’t stop me from being willing and ready to try to show kindness in the future or help others if I could find a way.
Consider showing some kindness today in your neighborhood. Then, watch it grow bigger and expand to cities, counteies, and the rest of the world.
