Ms. L.What you do comes back to you. It's simple as that. If you want to be treated with kindness, treat others with kindness.
Even when it's hard, even when you would rather not, even when all your friends are doing something else...show kindness. Show love. Show compassion.
I'm not perfect at this, I gotta work just like anyone else. There's a few people I interact with in real life that just drive me nuts.
I still strive to treat them with kindness.
If nothing else, I look at it this way: If Ms. L. drives me up the walls, she likely irritates everyone around her. And most folks do not show much kindness to folks who drive them crazy. So I can make a difference to Ms. L. by being kind...and I can set an example to others.
Maybe by showing love and kindness to Ms. L. I can make a difference.
And maybe she'll pass it on to someone else.
