I Believe In Treating Others With Kindness

    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...

    Kindness Is Contagious

    I am grateful that I was raised to be courteous, kind and thoughtful. As the Mother of a 13 year old son I can say that some of the most proud moments of my life have been witnessing a strangers response to my son's unprompted acts of courtesy. I have raised him with the same...

    Sarcasm

    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...

    Actions Truly Do Say I Care About You As You Once Did For Me

    As we age, we often become a bit more mellow, sentimental, and not wanting to be a bother to anyone. Our material needs become less while our desire to spend time with our loved ones increases. We are so busy when we are younger and perhaps don't always recognize that the aging...

    I don't really agree with the title.

    Unless you treat that person nice for a very very very long time.

    What I've Learned

    I've lived long enough to learn a few things. There is a circle of life. What goes around does come around. What we put out eventually comes back to us. We all really are connected to each other, even if we have never met and live on different sides of the earth. Treating others...

    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.

    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...

    What Goes Around Comes Around

    It feels good to randomly put a smile on someone's face...especially when you don't even know them...perhaps just opening a door, or allowing someone else go ahead of you... I hope you had reason to  today!

    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!

    A Spoon Full of Sugar

    I do believe that even if a friend is hurting or going down a path that I may believe is not in their best interests, it's important to speak up and help them through it. But it's more important to help with kind words, not mean and spiteful ones. An so called friend believed...

    that we can display is compassion. If everyone had equal amounts of compassion for one another this would be a better world to be in.

    Most Important

    This is the most important thing I do every day- treat others the way I would like to be treated. Kindness is the simplest thing, and can save lives without you even being aware.

    I have a really bad back and it shows when I'm limping along with a cane. There are times when I'm away from home that things just happen to fall. Happens to everyone... So many times someone will try and help. Then get offended when I pick it up myself. It's not that their...

    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.

    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.
