What it is:
Those who make compassion an essential part of their lives find the joy of life. Kindness deepens the spirit and produces rewards that cannot be completely explained in words. It is an experience more powerful than words. To become acquainted with kindness one must be prepared to learn new things and feel new feelings. Kindness is more than a philosophy of the mind. It is a philosophy of the spirit.—Robert J. Furey
“That best portion of a good man’s life; His little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and of love.”—William Wordsworth
It doesn’t involve:
- Ignoring your own needs.
- Allowing others to make decisions for you.
- Being afraid to say no.
It’s simply about paying attention and helping people when you can and how you can.
