Growing up, I didn't know who I was. I didn't know what I wanted, what was important to me, or what I was passionate about. Throughout my childhood though, there was one thing that was always consistent. I wanted people to know me as kind. Out of all of the adjectives in the world, that one was the one that mattered the most to me.
In a world where nothing is forever, and there are a lot of things that can't control, kindness is one of them. The world can be a dark, scary, overwhelming place. That is something that is easy to debate and hard to look past.That's why I've made it my main goal in life to be kind. In my opinion, if I'm kind, I'm successful.
Kindness is the cheapest thing you can gift someone. All it takes is a compliment, a smile, a joke, whatever it takes to make someone feel appreciate and loved. Kindness is often overlooked now. People feel that it's not as pivotal as it actually is, when in reality, it is more needed than ever.
With things like social media, kindness is easy to send. That being said, it can also easily influence things like self confidence, worth, and anxiety. It's important now to check up on people.Make sure they're doing okay. Sometimes, it's good to just send a message. They don't have to reply. It's a good feeling to know that you're being thought of.
Another good thing is to keep a positive attitude. Kindness and happiness are contagious. A smile, a laugh, a look can go a long way. One smile can mean the world to someone, and often times, it doesn't end there. Kindness starts a chain reaction.
Kindness goes a long way. As obvious as it sounds, it can be one of the most important things in a person's life. Still, with that known, it's not often that it is shown. My challenge for you is to realize the importance. Make your life goal to be the kindest person you can possibly be.
