Random Musings: The Strength of Kindness…

Standard

I am so tired of people being made to believe that there is weakness in Being Kind and there is something wrong with you if your natural response to lifes bumps and challenges is to proceed in a spirit of kindness . If you only show kindness to those you deem to be worth showing kindness to, doesn’t that in fact mean that you are not genuinely a kind person but rather one who exchanges kindnesses as a currency and gives only to receive in return? A truly kind person is a person of strength as they courageously give kindness regardless of another persons perceived worth or ability to return the favor. Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair, but manifestations of strength and resolution.Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

No matter how others will behave I shall always be me and treat people with respect, kindness, and even gentle understanding. Everyone is worth your kindness & those who don’t appreciate it are actually the ones who truly need it the most. A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it gives them permission to be kind themselves. Does having this philosophy mean I may get hurt or disappointed? YES….but I prefer to live a life that brings moments of pain while being Genuinely Me rather than choosing to tiptoe through life, hiding away the heart & soul of me, in an attempt to avoid giving of myself in any way that could lead to possible hurt or disappointment. Does this make me a fool? Perhaps……..but in the end I can only BE Honestly & unapologetically ME. ~ Twin Spirit
