    Rare Nowadays....

    I think if you treat someone with true loving kindness then that same kindness comes out of them. It's like a sword to penetrate through the thick armor some people wear for protection. and I think it allows them to shed their "armor" if only temporarily to return the kindness.

    I always make sure to treat other's with

    kindess, compassion, and understanding no matter who they are or what they've dont to me personally. Most people give the kindness right back, mostly strangers and adults. If strangers can return kindness, why can't my friends?

    Yes, I am a firm believer in treating others

    with kindness. This is the only way to treat and work with others within your family, friends, co-workers, and others in day to day meetings with each other. However, do not let others over run you and your ideas. Stand your ground but be tactful when dealing with others.

    We have differing demographics, but we are the populace of the Earth. We are the same kind. Be kind!

    Today I read it is better to treat everyone

    with kindness from the first moment,because you always can be unkind later,but once you are unkind there is no turning back.

    It is easy for many people to get caught up in sarcasm and behind the back talk. This human behavior is a way we cope with our ego in need of a boost. Putting someone else down to make us feel better. We have all done it. I try hard not to get caught in this trap. Joking or not...

    A Piece Of Me In Someone Else

    Some people just need pass by me and I am happy. There are people who feels what I feel. There are people who live like I live, and think what I think. There are people who talk to me looking at my eyes leaving a special touch, and there are people who silence but I can still...

    There aren't enough people in the world

    who are kind to the people they meet. Regardless of if you're a total stranger or my best friend, I always treat people the same way. There was an old system called chivalry, being gentlemanly, which I practice. I believe that the world is better with random acts of kindness, so...

    I Try To

    I try to be kind to everyone I deal with in my life, and I think that over all, I'm doing a pretty good job. Some people though, they just annoy me, and because I'm not a naturally patient person, that can cause difficulty. I do believe that what you send out comes back to you...

    Treat others the way you want to be treated.

    Don't do to others what you don't want to be done. You will never regret being kind, but you will regret being otherwise.

    I don't see the point in treating someone

    unkindly. It only reflects negatively on yourself. I understand that people don't always see eye to eye, but where in that does it say you have to be rude simply because someone views something different than you and who are we to say what is right or wrong? From my prospective...

    It's Non Negotiable

    I won't alter my behavior toward others because of what is happening in my life. If I do act in a way that is not consistent with my usual self, then I try and address the issue and resolve things quickly and with sincere apologies when necessary.

    What an incredible story.

    Homeless man gets a break from a complete stranger and a flood of emotion ensues. We could only wish that this type of kindness would be reciprocated worldwide.  Props to that dude!
