Being kind costs nothing.
In being kind, the following things happen:
- It makes you feel good,
- It makes you happy,
- Through your actions of kindness, it makes someone else happy and it makes someone else feel good
Yet why do some people choose to be unkind?
Often the person is unaware that they are being unkind – they are not conscious. It’s an unconscious behaviour that’s become habitual and part of their life. It’s a way they are numbing their own pain. So, projecting their ‘unkindness’ is their way of being happy, it’s an anchor they use to cope with their own insecurities and pain.
We all do acts that are of unkindness. Some unkind acts are more hurtful than others.
In order to be KIND, raise your awareness on how you are with others, especially when you’re feeling down.
Do you take it out on others? By being so, is it helping you be happy?
Very likely not.
So why should you be kind? Because it’s a nice thing for you and the person receiving it.
Kindness releases feel-good hormones.
Pay attention next time you are being kind to someone, or yourself, you’ll notice that you feel happy. This isn’t just something that happens randomly—it has to do with the pleasure centres in your brain. Hence your brain releases happy hormones.
Remind yourself, we are all equal.
Just because someone else in your eyes may have a better job, a better life, or you feel they are prettier thank you… These things don’t qualify them with a ‘better’ title. What people have or don’t have doesn’t make them who they are.
So today, I challenge you to be kind. Doesn’t matter how someone treats you. Just give your share of love to them
When we treat each other with love, kindness and respect, that’s how we change the world for the better.
