    The Girl With The Hollow Eyes

    Kindness

    Don't mistake kindness for weakness. True kindness comes from great strength and well being. It comes from being secure enough to reach out to another.   When we choose kindness we build our self up first in the act. It then builds up people around us. That works...

    Who does it hurt to be kind? I mean really? I don't understand the trend of people being mean these days.

    Wamrness Is Poetry

    Let kindness speak louder. It has the gift to arrive without scaring off the birds, keeping the melody of the breeze. .  When the kindness talks, anger will shut up, startled. Normally no one fails to surrender to the voice of the kindness. But to be kind first of all, we must...

    I Truly Value Kindness - Above All Else.

    I believe kindness is one of the most fundamental bases of our soul. And in being kind, we are being true to who we really are. In that sense, everybody wins. Especially kindness in thought. Because I believe any true actions, begin in thoughts - as well as your heart - it shows...

    I'm new to EP and this is my first story.

    The following sums up what I believe quite well: http://ibelieveinkindness.org/ While seemingly completely uncontroversial and only a good and positive thing to believe, I'm somehow in an extreme minority of what people really believe and how they really behave. I so desperately...

    Always Demonstrate Kindness

    I think it is everyones natureis to act in kindness.  You're probably thinking, "Then why are so many people so rude?"  It's because they are out of balance with their own true nature, and are therefore not happy with their own inner being.  They think...

    Morning Begins...

    With kindness morning begins. Yes, there is no reason not to have a smile or a kind word during the day at any situation. We all are not perfect, and we all are in a mood sometimes. But as the day begins with a sunrise, even on a rainy day, we all are able for having a smile to...

    I usually don't share these types of things

    but I remember a homeless man came into a DQ while I was getting some ice cream. He was starving and asking for money and no one wanted to give it to him. I gave him 5 and said "remember, if you take advantage of my kindness, karma will not be too kind to in the future"

    Easier Said Than Done, I'm Afraid

     Kindness is taking a second before opening your mouth.  Kindness is trying to understand in advance, what the other person needs right that moment, not just barging in on them.  Kindness if actually helping and not just saying platidues.  Kindness is what you...
