I Try to Be Kind to Everyone

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 48,935 People

    But sometimes, Razor just don't give a ****.

    I'm human, I'm moody. As much of an outward attempt as I make to be outgoing and charming, there's times where I just don't care about keeping you in a good mood.

    I am so very tired of being hurt by people I

    care about. I want to know how to detach from people and shut off my feelings. There must be a way. Any advise?

    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.

    I am always the one person

    who will notice the little things. e.g I was walking around one day and this couple walks past me and the girl asks the boyfriend 'what time is it' and I notice that the guy has to go in to the jeans pocket and pull out the phone then check the time, instead I check the time and...

    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 know this is what I try to do,

    but I was just having a conversation with someone who was openly commenting horrible things. I don't care what your story is, I'm not going to judge you. But if you say mean things to people on purpose, I will speak out and depending what it is, I might not be able to be nice...

    Because I know what it is like to be treated

    unfairly and without kindness. Have you ever had to wait in a line of people, filing ahead so you can get a bed for the night, how about being turned away? It ****** me off that a charitable Christian organization like the Salvation Army can turn away people when it is cold...

    working in a call center can be tiresome.

    I'm the kind of person that will not hang up until the problem is solved or until we know the steps to solve it. and it basically wears me out when I have solved the problem and get no thanks. or they hang up on me before I even get to start my closing. at that point I figure...

    No Trouble

    The elderly lady with the bleeding nose got on the bus at the same stop as I did, but she wasn’t waiting there when it arrived. She came tottering unsteadily across the carpark, one arm raised, just as we were taking off. “I am sorry to have kept you waiting...

    I feel like it's easy to be kind to people

    or at the very least to be polite, sensitive and if you can't do that; don't do anything at all. Let me explain I'm a firm believer in the saying if you have nothing nice to say don't say anything at all. And if I don't like someone i just ignore them. The last day or so I've...

    Because every Criminal Minds episode starts by

    someone's awful past making them continue a cycle of violence. So maybe it depends upon each of us to try not to create or **** off any potentially-violent psychopaths. Never know when you might find one, so just be nice.

    There is no such thing

    as a neutral relationship. Over time every relationship you get involved with often, would either advance you in life or drag you down. Chose wisely, it?s better to surround yourself with positive success minded people, as this would keep you striving for excellence always...

    I tried to be kind in the past

    but everyone nowaday think you have some angle you're working, or you are after something. I guess it could be my appearances but if it that then well I can't really do anything to change that, I am what I am and I guess in a way I stopped trying to be kind, I'm not an...

    I tried constantly and regularly,

    such as try to think positive of everyone and even if I do I won't gossip about them behind their backs, and sometimes helping teachers. But all of that earned me nothing but gossip behind my back like I'm fake and all of that. So so you think I should stop being kind?

    I don't try to be kind,

    Being kind is one thing

    but not being able to be recognized by your action can seem like what the point. It happened today, I went out for a long walk up to the Bus station. Kids were going to school, and a parent with a child was mad dashing past me, didn't pay no attention to it but when I got near...

    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!

    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.

    Of late, being a 19 year old,

    We can't all be & do things the same,

    our differences is what keeps life beautiful/interesting & gives it colour/contrast. So whilst you live out yourself, you need to tolerate & give room for others to live out themselves too. That we may all live in peace & harmony with ourselves & the world around us.

    because no matter what you are going through you don't know what they are going through and it may be worse and a kind word to them might be what it takes to get them through whatever they are facing
