- Certainly. It’s important that kindness exists in our society as humans. These are the people who carry this quality within as well as compassion, empathy, honesty and love. You can only be kind if you carry the quality within you. But like Karey answered below me here. It can be so essential to assist a person to come back and have faith in life again.
Just think of small things like: “Thank you”, open a door for someone, ask with an honest intent, How are you? To take a little interest to listen to someone, maybe even take them for a lunch. There are many ways.
You show that you give value and respect for a person. To invest some of your energy for someone else is an act of compassion. This can be an enormous boost for a person who’s given up things and hope.
How many times, do we say thank you for a good job to the cleaning lady, the trash man, the post man or the bus driver. It’s good to give encouragement to people who do plenty of service for others.
People need to feel that they are needed and accepted in their world. They also need a sense of responsibility because then they are part of contributing something and they give more of themselves.
To say “Hello” to your neighbors or to the people in the community is to promote contact and equally kindness in having interest in others. So many people have grown selfish and scared, so they hardly look at each other. The cell phones have made this worse. It’s a perfect “excuse” to pass by unnoticed.
So, kindness is important in life.
- You know, by simply asking this question, you’ve shown that like me, you believe simple acts of kindness are not just simple but truly important. For someone who’s unhappy or who has lost their way, an unexpected kind deed could restore that other person’s faith in humanity. It can give a boost in all sorts of ways. A kind neighbor and I bonded when she needed help assisting a third person in trouble. A kindness can save a life by changing it; it can give someone else a reason for living – as when that third person saw that two other people cared. Another neighbor who offered to help me with a difficult situation helped me see that another person recognized the difficulties I was struggling with – and that was what I needed at the time more than actual help. The Dalai Lama says, “My religion is kindness.” Cultivate a habit of kindness and it will give you a reason to keep going when times are tough for you. And it will certainly change your life.
