If you can’t find a kind person, then choose to be one yourself.
There really aren’t many assholes in the world, but it seems as though they are strategically placed so that you’ll run into at least once a week. But, why would the Universe do that? Simple. They are examples of what not to become. Instead, choose to be a “kind person.”
Choose to be a kind person
Join the resistance against the spread of people acting arrogant, greedy, and selfishness. Be an example of a kind person. An example others can use. You can do it. Yes, it does take some effort and a bit of courage. Instead of reacting in a negative way, choose to respond with love and kindness. Be the reason someone believes there are still good people in the world.
How to be a kind person
Here are just some of the opportunities you’ll find to be a good person. It may be shocking to those around you so be aware you may get some strange looks for being a kind person.
- When you are cut off in traffic. Smile and be kind instead of giving them the middle finger.
- If you see someone is hunting a parking space, give them yours.
- Going through a toll booth, pay for the person directly behind you.
- Allow the elderly or someone with few items to go ahead of you at the grocery checkout.
