    Be nice to people no matter how terrible they

    treat you. Everyone is fighting their own battles behind close doors.

    The Golden Rule

    Although this is nothing more than treating others nicely, mainly because as normal human beings, we want people to be nice to us, I find that it's easier to be nice to people than to be miserable. Like the saying, you catch more flies with honey than you do vinegar, I find...

    Be Kind When Your Kindness Is Refused

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    You never know what is going on in another person's head.  Many times I have stood at the edge of shattering; where I could be saved or broken in a single word.  For all I know, the person sitting next to me at the bus stop may well be at that point.  As I...

    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.

    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!

    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...

    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.

    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...
