Kindness

“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle.”

Plato

This is one of my favorite quotes! It reminds me that I don’t know what others are going through so I should cut them some slack. Being a pleasant person is much more important than being right. Sometimes it is really difficult to be kind, but these are the times when we show the most strength.

Have you ever been the recipient of kindness when it was unexpected?

  1. The only example of kindness I can think of off the top of my head right now is all the generosity to be found in the Blogosphere. Writer bloggers are such kind people, and I’m thankful for all of them.

    Pleased to meet you via the A-Z Challenge.

    • Hi, Jeffrey. Thanks for stopping by! I completely agree with you about the Blogosphere. Lots of encouragement and support from writers 🙂

  2. That Plato quote is a good one to remember. It’s like when someone complains to me I always think that they should be thankful for what they do have because there’s always someone who has it worse.

    I’ve received much unexpected kindness in my life that doesn’t immediately come to mind, but I’ll second Jeffrey’s thoughts about other bloggers. Many very kind and caring folks out there.
