“Three things in human life are important. The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. The third is to be kind.”
– Henry James
Being kind is not something to do when you need a person: that is called ‘hypocrisy’. Being kind is when you do not need the person but you act generously without any kind of needs.
There are people you are kind with ‘just because’. Sometimes you just feel like giving extra time. No reason has pushed you to do so and still you feel you want to call, help, text that person.
Well, this should be done with everybody with no exception because being kind is the best response to warm and even cold people, to friends, family and strangers. It is the only way you show them how to act. By doing it yourself, you gain respect. You do not need to worry in any kind of situations. You have nothing to regret: You were kind from the beginning to the end. You do not need to fight or apologize: You were doing it in a kind respectful way that no one has the right to tell you off.
“We are all here on earth to help others; what on earth the others are here for I don’t know.”
– W. H. Auden
Being kind is your self-protection because you will still be criticized in your life for different reasons, your point of view, your way of life. But do it perfectly embracing manners at the highest level. And then your mind will stay quiet and go through all kinds of obstacles.
There will always be harmful comments, less appreciated people. You cannot love everybody. Always be polite, civil, courteous and you will be the winner at the end of the day, the one who stayed intact, the one who will stand out through perfect behavior.
“If we cannot be clever, we can always be kind.”
– Alfred Fripp
Avoid harming people. We do not need hate. Apologize if you feel like it is necessary. Misunderstandings exist everywhere. Pride and Ego have nothing to do with your reactions.
But above all, be kind! Its power is not to underestimate. The kindest people are the smartest ones. They find themselves surrounded by more and more friends, people they can rely on, a whole community that cherish them for who they are truly and not for what they are doing.
So be clever, you know now what you have to do!
Just remind yourself that the human beings know exactly who has acted very well through their lives’ challenges. Their memory capacity is very high at this field. They perfectly know how to repay that person as well. Do not seek to be repaid. It is a natural unexpected process that goes with the joy of life …
