I Believe In Treating Others With Kindness

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,522 People

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    Kindness

    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.
