Being Kinder To Others

Let’s take a look at Being Kinder to Others! In my last post I suggested that we should give ourselves the gift of kindness. In this post I want to look at various ways in which we can give others the gift of kindness.

This is because kindness shows us a lot more about ourselves than we realise. Kind people are empathetic which mean they’re in tune with the world around them and carry with them an awareness of the needs of others. What’s more, they’re not shy about acting on those needs in offering a helping hand when it’s required the most. You’ve undoubtedly heard the expression, “There but for the grace of God, go I.”

If you don’t think kindness matters, stop to consider the impact it has on both ourselves and on the world around us. In the next article I will take a look at how kindness matters and helps others.
