Have you ever heard the saying, “Treat people how you want to be treated?” It’s a pretty simple concept that has helped me build relationships and make friends. But what does it mean? Treating others well is about being kind, but it also requires that we recognize the inherent value in everyone and everything.
Also, general knowledge questions are good for getting to know someone.
When we are kind to others, it not only benefits them but also ourselves. When we make an effort to be good to those around us, they in turn usually respond positively towards us as well. This creates a positive feedback loop of kindness that can have a profound effect on our lives and the world around us.
You will feel better yourself.
Kindness is contagious, so you’ll be helping others with your good deed and feel great about yourself in the process.
Your kindness will spread to other people, who will then pass it on to others. Before you know it, kindness has made its way around the world.
There are many ways to show kindness, such as:
- Give someone a compliment or express gratitude for something they did
- Help someone with their problems
- Make a donation to a charity that helps people in need of food, shelter, or medical treatment
You can make someone else’s day.
It’s an incredible feeling to make another person’s day, and it doesn’t take much. A smile or a kind gesture can go a long way toward brightening someone else’s life, and as you can see from the charts above, we’re talking about months or years of happiness. You may be skeptical, but consider this: kindness can also last for decades. The ripple effects of being thoughtful are truly astounding.
It’s easy to forget that we all live on this rock, collectively. You might not think about how your actions impact others, but it turns out there is an actual science behind kindness. Various studies have shown that being nice can make a person happier and healthier, which leads us right back around to how it helps you feel better too.
You can model kindness for your kids.
Model kindness for your kids. Children learn by example. They don’t just pick up a trait or two from their parents, they learn how to be a good person through their parents’ actions, words and interactions with others. When you show kindness toward others, your children are watching and learning how to treat people well too.
Be kind because it feels better than being mean. Being kind is its own reward. Being mean can make you feel bad about yourself but being kind makes you feel good about yourself – which means that if you want to make the world feel better when you’re in it too then choose kindness over meanness every time.
It becomes a habit.
Kindness is not just a nice thing to do; it can become an intrinsic part of your personality. Kindness becomes habit when you make the decision to be kind, and then show that kindness toward others on a regular basis.
It’s important to show kindness in all areas of your life: in your relationships with co-workers, at home with family members, and even on social media if that’s something you use regularly. You can encourage this behavior by making sure that you’re practicing it yourself before asking others to do so as well.
For example, if someone asks you for advice about how they should handle their current situation with their boss or coworker, don’t tell them what they should do; instead give them some tips on ways they could approach their problem from a more positive angle while still maintaining professionalism.
This way they’ll have time to think about how best to apply those tips without feeling pressured into doing anything right away (which might cause them further stress).
With kindness, you can change the world.
The fact of the matter is, we live in a world where most people don’t realize how important kindness is. It’s so easy to get caught up in our own lives and forget about what other people are going through. But with this mindset, we can change the world for the better, we just have to make a conscious effort to do it.
Kindness can make someone else’s day. The next time you see someone who looks stressed out or upset, take a minute and ask them if they need anything. Or if you’re feeling generous, why not buy them something small like an ice cream cone? You’d be surprised at how much impact these things can have on someone’s life.
Kindeness is contagious: one act of kindness leads to another and another until everyone feels happier than they did before they were kind; that cycle continues until everyone has been positively affected by your actions (and hopefully will pass down those feelings).
