I Perform Random Acts Of Kindness

Sharing stories of doing something nice all on your own 29,156 People

    I now realize you can't be a nice guy.

    People don't appreciate acts of kindness. I'm tired of hearing I'm too nice. What does that even mean? I'm just a little fed up given so much of myself to self-serving individuals. Basically being kind, caring and loving doesn't seem to be as much fun as being a...

    If I come into your life,

    I want to leave you feeling better. I believe in being kind and thoughtful in everything I do. A compliment, holding open a door for someone, even if it's as little as a smile, I want to be a light in darkness.

    I once helped a random elderly woman at Walmart

    for about an hour because she wasn't sure where to go, and none of the associates could help her.

    Today, I was at the hospital waiting to see the

    doctor. I got sick and it's a sinus infection. So as I was about to exit the hospital, I noticed a woman in a wheelchair struggling to get her wheelchair going. So I helped her by pushing her to where she wanted to go. She had wanted to get to the Tim Horton's inside the...

    Whenever

    I don't really see these things as being all that kind, because to me, it's just the way things should be. I hold the door open for people. I help people who have too many things in their hands. I will take the cart from someone who just unloaded it into their car, if I'm on...

    and I never expect anything back from it just that you don't abuse my kindness or mistake it for weakness.

    I had a sweet and very simple experience today!

    I was at a pedestrian stoplight and made eye contact with a very stern, rude looking woman! It looked like she was glaring at me but I ignored that fact and instinctively smiled at her just because this is what I naturally do when I make eye contact. Anyhow after we crossed...

    I feel like most things in just daily life.

    ..pick something up when someone drops something/giving the cashier back the extra $5 she accidentally gave you etc etc should just BE. Trust me. I hate humans. I pretty much hate everyone. But be decent. This should not be optional. We have to share the same planet/space for a...

    All they have to do is do the same for me, but they don't have to do it to where it inconvince's them because that don't make me feel good.

    Lined up at the queue,

    waiting for my turn to pay. At the neighbouring cashpoint, I notice a group moving together in unison: a thin woman of about 30, two young children clinging to her dress and a young girl of about 16. They were speaking a language I couldn't identify. I observed them as the young...

    Those born blind can not see; similarly blind

    are those in the grip of lust. Proud man have no perceptive of evil; and those bent on acquiring riches see no sin in their actions.

    What if today we remember to be a little kinder?

    Every Act Of Kindness Counts!

    She followed the blood stains on the carpet,

    leading her to the hurt one. It was hiding under the chair in the living room. Scared. Shaking. Dying. Surrounded by the fear of death.  The big eyes, pouring the fear out all over its face, trying to look up at her, in agony of not being able to breath; wheezing, struggling...
