    My religion is kindness.

    Some people believe that to be moral you have to be religious and that is the farthest thing from true. I don't claim to be any religion, I just strive to be a good person. Love and kindness is so essential, but it's what the world lacks the most. I may not grow up to do much...

    I would just like to take a moment

    and thank all of the nice and considerate people on here who make people's lives better. People who take time out of their lives to be supportive and caring for someone else. I just feel like those people are not thanked enough, so thank you!

    about being "too nice" and "letting people get away with things". I am, by no means, "too nice". I will always stand up for what I believe in and what I feel is right. I won't, however, push someone to do something they don't want to do or believe in something that I believe in...

    Why are there so many rude people in the world

    today? People are so judgmental. Put on a smile and ask people how they are doing? Put on a smile and open the door or just help someone out. You could really make someone's day.

    Sometimes, listening is the best form of

    kindness there can be and much needed in this world. It is an ultimate gesture of respect and empathy, and a wonderful way to be present, to be in the moment with someone. You do not need to have all the answers or gifts or resources to help someone in order to listen well.

    It's important to me to do so.

    Everyone is fighting their own battles and I don't know what they are so I show kindness even if it isn't shown to me. It makes me happier to do so. It's the easiest and often the best gift to give.

    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch,

    a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

    that I'm forever picking up "strays." Yeah, she's mean but I love her too. I just love people and I always see the best in someone and I treat everyone kind. My parents raised me to love and respect everyone and that's what I do. It's that southern charm!

    that gets made fun of, set up, played, cheated on, and just plain out embarrassed & humiliated by people. I'll sit there and laugh it off or just smile and walk on at school and when I get home I'll cry. They constantly bully me about my weight and it's getting old. I'm so tired...
