7. ALWAYS BE KIND TO OTHERS.
Always be kind to others. Why? Well there are loads of reasons, and I’ll share them all with you.
Firstly, kindness is free, you can give away as much as you want, and you’ll never be poor.
Secondly, Jesus said “Do unto others as you would as you would have them do unto you.” which means if you want people to be kind to you, you first gotta be kind yourself.
Thirdly, kindness is the gift we never knew someone needed, that can change someone’s life forever.
Understand those reasons? Good. Now, think back to the time when someone was kind to you. When someone did something unexpected or something good to you that you didn’t even expect like paying for your small groceries, paying for your parking, opening the door for you, helping you carry something. Tell me, how did it feel? How did that one act of random kindness make you feel? Unless you’re a bot, you’ll obviously have felt really good right? Almost like you wanna be friends with that person.
Now that you reminded yourself and remember how people’s kind act makes you feel, imagine what would it be like for others when you do the same.
You can literally help change the course of someone’s day or even life with even a simple, nice act of kindness. And since it doesn’t cost you anything, and makes you feel just as good as the person you’re kind to, you can be kind, and do an act of kindness as many times as you want. Who’s gonna stop you from being kind?
We all have times when we need someone to be kind to us, whether we’re going through hard times, or when we are sad, or not feeling our best. And whether in those times someone was kind to us or not, we can be just as kind to other people going through the same, and it can change their lives. And especially at those times do we realize that kindness is the best gift we can give to others, way more than a million dollar Bugatti, or a private jet, or anything that money can buy.
I mean being kind to others is just amazing. I f*cking looove being kind to people. Saying thank you, and please, holding the door open, helping people carry their stuff, giving advice to someone in need, and all those stuff. It just makes me feel good, and makes me wanna be kind to everybody, and who wouldn’t want to do that?
Now, some people actually think that being kind, and nice to others is a sign of weakness. That mindset is the weakness. Being kind and nice to other people just for the sake of it, is the strongest thing someone can do. 100%. Strong people are the ones that aren’t afraid to help out others, and treat others nicely, and with respect, while the weak ones can’t do shit except being selfish all the time, or thinking it’s a sign of weakness. If you think otherwise, you can go into your mama’s basement and cry.
Now if you’re thinking of being kind because of other motives, like just to get something in return or to appear kind, or stuff like that, you need to look at yourself and say “What the f*ck is wrong with me?” Being nice and kind to others for other reasons is just plain manipulation. Either you be a genuine kind person, or don’t at all. Don’t be machiavellianistic.
Just like someone’s act of kindness can make your day, you can do the same to others just as much as you want. As I said, it’s free, and at no cost to you.
Another reason why kindness can help is because you never know what someone else is going through. You can’t tell what people are going through by looking at them. Depressed people can put on a smile just as much as happy people. So do not be mean to others. Ever. Do not say things you wouldn’t want others to say to you. Do not be an asshole. Do not try to put others down. Instead, always be kind to others. You never know if it can make someone’s day, or possibly even change their life.
So, make it a goal for yourself to be as kind as possible. Even the smallest things can help, like giving a compliment, praising people, or even just opening the door for someone. Because as Aesop once said,
“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.”
