Stop Being Nice


kindness - hug

Being kind to someone or something means that the only thing on your mind is another person's or animal's well-being.


"Niceness" is usually something we do to make ourselves feel better.


"๐‘พ๐’‰๐’‚๐’• ๐’Š๐’” ๐’•๐’‰๐’† ๐’…๐’Š๐’‡๐’‡๐’†๐’“๐’†๐’๐’„๐’† ๐’„๐’–๐’› ๐’Š๐’‡ ๐‘ฐ ๐’‚๐’Ž ๐’๐’Š๐’„๐’† ๐’๐’“ ๐’Œ๐’Š๐’๐’… ๐’Š๐’• ๐’Ž๐’‚๐’Œ๐’†๐’” ๐’Ž๐’† ๐’‡๐’†๐’†๐’ ๐’ˆ๐’๐’๐’…!?!"


If you held the door open for someone and said, "Good morning!" and they just walked in and ignored you and you got angry or offended, THAT is being 'nice'.


Kindness means you held that door open with no expectations other than you wanted to do something kind. Kindness means you held that door open, said good morning, and walked in behind the person without it bothering you that they said nothing.


If you follow this page or are in our private group, then you must already want to be a kind person and are working on ways to bring that truth to fruition.


If you love and respect the world around you, you will not abuse it. That same respect should be extended to people and all living things you meet daily. With this understanding comes a sense of great responsibility. This makes you a protector, a guardian, if you will. With those titles comes kindness.


Being kind does not always come easy, but with some practice, and an awareness of it, it will become easier with time. Like anything else in life, the more you practice it, the better you will become at it.


We are all guilty in today's environment of not displaying kindness, compassion, or patience. It is my responsibility as a teacher/mentor/leader to provide guidance on how to live this way of life to the best of our ability, so that we can grow, become kinder, exercise patience, and have more compassion for our community.


How you make others feel about themselves says a lot about you. There are opportunities every single day to be kind. Will you use your powers for โ€˜nicenessโ€™ or for Kindness?


Blessed be.

my daughter was telling me one day about smiling at a person, holding a door for an individual, and letting someone go ahead of her. i popped off and said "i used to be like that, but nobody is that way anymore. " then i read this article and i realized my daughter's a kind person, this is what she was trying to explain to me. i am determined from this day forward to become a kind person again.

thank you, Laurie, you are an awesome mentor/leader. & appreciated.
