I Try to Be Kind to Everyone

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 40,187 People

    I try and I think everybody should too.

    Maybe the reason people are always so angry and mean is because nobody is nice to them.

    Sometimes it's difficult!

    Sometimes everyone isn't a nice guy! Sometimes your patience is tried, despite humility.

    Especially when I'm having a bad day

    or just angry, I try to channel all that negative energy into something good. I tend to do more kind things during bad days.

    Since being kind is so rare nowadays,

    sometimes people thought you're up to something when you try to be one.

    In daily life, I always try to be nice

    and courteous to everyone I meet, whether its a wave, a smile, both, holding doors open for people, being polite and saying excuse me, thank you, etc... I feel this is important because more than ever, it feels as if we are losing this... I find myself shocked when I run into...

    A tongue has no bones

    but it's really strong enough to break a heart. It only takes a few seconds to hurt someone but sometimes it takes years to repair the damage.

    Tonight I cooked a meal

    for my parents because they returned late from work but I shared a part of it with my next door neighbour as well because they also returned late from work. What I got in return? Appreciation, smiles and satisfaction!

    I really try but some people are like kids,

    they want to see how far they can push you until you blow up. Seems like staying to myself with a book and a pair of headphones are just how things have to be.

    I always try being kind to everyone,

    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.

    I tried, but I think not everyone deserves my

    kindness. Some people misinterpret kindness as being indefinite and that leaves us being abuse and hurt. It's okay to be kind but to an extent.

    and someone gives me an act of kindness, it makes my day. Someone who can go out of their way, or do something they didnt have to do but did it anyways to be nice, will always have a place in my heart. I try to do the same, because you never know who will need it or what they...

    I try to be kind to everyone

    but truth be told I fall short of that from time to time. I made kind of a snarky comment to one of my co workers. not warranted just was feeling annoyed. wondering if I should reach out and bridge that gap or just let it go.

    I greet kindness with kindness.

    I greet hostility with confusion, then an equal amount of hostility. I would like to say I am kind to all people all the time, but I am not.

    You never know what someone's going through,

    so I try to make sure I treat every single person as I would like to be. No matter how little the impact you have on someone's day, if it's positive, it counts for something :)

    The golden rule: "treat people how you want to

    be treated". I try. But sometimes I can't take it if they are acting so immature and rude and inappropriate. I don't know.

    It's not always easy,

    especially when people insult me, but insulting someone back makes you just as bad. Be a better person and don't stoop that level. :) Being kind makes you someone people want to be around. (:

    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...
