Be Kind

31 Mar

Hand out your chuckles while you can.

Before you speak, ask yourself: is it kind, is it necessary, is it true, does it improve on the silence?

 Sai Baba (via earth-beat) (via subhanallah)

Your words have power.  Use them for good.

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

I strive every day to be not only nice, but kind as described in Marcia Sirota’s Huffington Post article.

The way I understand it, kindness emerges from someone who’s confident, compassionate and comfortable with themselves. A kind person is loving and giving out of the goodness of their heart.

At the root of extreme niceness, however, are feelings of inadequacy and the need to get approval and validation from others. Overly-nice people try to please so that they can feel good about themselves.

Being nice is a learned skill while kindness comes from an air of self love.
