Kindness is a powerful force that can be felt down deep by those who experience both ends of it. Some people see kindness as a weakness. But in reality, kindness is in itself a true manifestation of strength for not everyone has the capacity to be kind in a genuine and selfless way.
Kindness is much more than many realize
We live in a world that celebrates, prioritizes and publicizes being rich, powerful, famous, brilliant, successful and in control.
On the other hand, kindness is often perceived as a weakness and those who show it are either taken advantage of, or disrespected.
Because of this, some people intentionally refuse to be kind to others because they fear being victimized.
I’m sure you’ve come across someone who needed your assistance, but instead of you stopping by to offer a helping hand (the kind thing to do), you walked, or drove past them thinking, “I don’t know her or him.
Who knows, he or she might be a serial killer or an armed robber.” Continue reading to learn why kindness is not a weakness.
Hopefully, these reasons will inspire you to stay true to your true self (a kind person), even if the people around you don’t appreciate your efforts.
Kindness is a manifestation of true strength, lets take a look why…
Kindness Brings Joy, Inner Fullness and Personal Power
It may interest you to know that some people who seem to have everything going well for them i.e. smart, wealthy and powerful men and women, are very unhappy, weak and empty on the inside.
Yes, you read that right!
With all their millions, they constantly suffer from anxiety because they fear being rejected or taken advantage of.
To maintain their power and control, they treat themselves and others with harshness; something that pushes people away from them. The result? A miserable, lonely and empty life.
On the other hand, being kind to yourself and others can take away that emptiness, and replace it with inner peace, fullness of love and a sense of personal power.
You don’t have to do something big to change someone’s life. Small acts of kindness such as complimenting someone’s looks, or carrying your neighbor’s shopping bags are just as powerful.
So, ignore all the naysayers and show kindness to others.
Kindness Leads To Loving Relationships
Kindness, and not fame, money, controlling behavior or smartness, is a vital ingredient in developing loving relationships.
Kindness brings a smile on other people’s faces and makes them feel good. When mutual trust is developed between you and the person you’re nice to, he or she will open up to you more, and you’ll be able to relate with him or her at a more personal level.
With time, you’ll find yourself developing loving relationships with so many strangers you never imagined you would ever meet.
In turn, your personal life will be happier and much more fulfilling.
Kindness Makes A Difference in Other People’s Lives
Kindness has a ripple effect. When you’re kind to others, you not only make them feel good, but also inspire them to do good to you and others.
I bet this world would be much better if everyone showed kindness to one another. The good news is that it doesn’t cost a cent, and you can do it anywhere, at any time.
So, no more excuses; get out there and make a difference in someone’s life.
Overall, every act of kindness, however small it is, can change the world for the better.
Be that change that you’d like to see in the world. Be kind to others because it’s definitely not a weakness.
