Stupid Kindness — 4 Comments

  1. Kindness should never go out of style. It is true that our changing world sometimes makes it harder to show that kindness but we must never resort to apathy or nastiness. We must be an example to our peers and the younger generations. I always told our kids, you’ll never be sorry for treating someone kindly.

    • No, kindness should never go out of style and I hope it never does. If each person practiced just a little kindness each day, the world would be a better place. It may be cliche, but it’s true!

  2. Random acts of kindness are the jewels of life. Everyone should participate in the rewarding sense of joy of being kind to others. The personal satisfaction of being kind is payment enough to give one a meaningful sense of fulfillment in life.

    • I agree that being kind to others is not only a gift to others but a gift to oneself. Science has proven that kindness is actually good for our health (https://www.cedars-sinai.org/blog/science-of-kindness.html). I like being kind, but on some days with some people who never return kindness or give acknowledgement, it feels like a slap in the face. I don’t know if others feel this way sometimes? Maybe I should return to Don Miguel Ruiz’s The Four Agreements!
