How To Be Kind To Each Other

Dear Thinette

Thinette behind a laptop

Have you lately heard someone say “Oh thank you very much, it was so kind of you!” It happened to me the other day in town and I utter those words with the greatest gratitude.

How To Be Kind To Each Other

Talking to someone I walked backwards and missed the step. Fall down, and the content of my bag spill all over. A guy came from nowhere, reached out his hand, helped me to my feet, gathered all the items and assist me to the car carrying the bag. That was real-old-world behaviour, I was so grateful.How to be kind to others, person-helping-someone-who-fell

To be kind to someone, does not mean nice, but to be kind is a voluntary act of will? There is a huge difference, my dear. Doing something for someone else with the sole benefit of their well-being. No payment or favours in return, that is an act of Kindness.

How many people, you know, will go out of their way to help and want nothing in return. It gives them a pleasure to help and it makes them happy at the same time.

It is not only acts that define a kind person, but it also means to Respect a person. Be sensitive to others feelings. Be aware of the words you speak and the way you act. Don’t do anything that will hurt people physically or emotionally.

  • Being kind to someone is doing something for them to enhance their life, an act of sincerity from the heart.
