I Believe Kindness Matters

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,203 People

    Again, I need some support

    and no one is available to me. I was accused once of being a bot, maybe that's what I should be, just shut off those feelings and become a Stepford Wife, without the wife part.

    Kindness is too often correlated with weakness

    in my opinion. I try to go out if my way to be a kind and decent human being, but it does get discouraging when people try to take advantage of this fact. My friends and family say "you shouldn't be so nice to people", but it's how I was raised, and I don't want to change that...

    I've just been thinking about this a little

    further. I feel kindness matters all the more when we or others botch things up, when the eyes of the world or on you or you feel they are, and you risk being overwhelmed by the feeling of the importance of getting it right. And that's how little kindnesses can 'ripple' in the...

    The more you experience the bad things in life,

    the more you empathize with other people who have had or are having the same or similar problems. Also, treating others the way you wish to be treated is the best way to go, even if they don't return the favor. Because in the end, you are the better person. And sometimes you get...

    Kindness Is The Gift That Keeps On Giving

    There have been many times when I've felt so down that I thought I'd never get up again. There have been other times when I've felt so broken that I thought nothing would ever bring any solace or healing. And then, there have been times when I quietly screamed inside from the...

    I dislike how some people at my age look down

    on kindness and compassion, as if it's a sign of weakness, and those people peer pressure others, for example, I know people that would put down someone for wanting to walk with a friend to their house to keep them company, because it's 'gay', I don't know how common this...

    I will always make sure I do what I can to make

    someone feel better. I realize everyone is fighting some (at a small or great level) sort of daily battle in life. If you know me personally, I will talk about kindness almost daily... But acting on it is key.

    ... Specially kindness to ourselves.

    I'm the type of person where I don't care how you talk to the people above you it's the people below you that matters most. Respect and kindness go a long way with impressing me. Kindness is very prevalent in what I do. I have to see horrible people do horrible things to animals...
