Being kind

Being “nice” means being pleasant and harmless. Being “kind” means being respectful, supportive, and looking out for people’s interest. It means that the nicest thing you’ll do will make you popular and the kindest thing you’ll do for your loved one may infuriate them. It means “nice” is self-serving and “kind” serves others. 

If you want to convince me that you’re a kind person, please know I’ll watch how you treat:

  • Teachers, referees, and police officers,
  • The homeless,
  • Parents (if you are a teen), 
  • Your enemies, and
  • Your spouse.
