Be Kind To Yourself And Others

Kindness is generosity of spirit. Come to life when we give of ourselves and our time to help others without expecting anything in return. When you show kindness to someone you bring out the best in you, and the side effects of a sunny day someone else is to be happy in the moment itself.


Consider the impact of your behavior on others, and pay attention to your own feelings in the association for their reaction. And think about how you feel yourself when others show you a favor. What you give comes back to you in a larger amount. When you're good, you not only get an immediate return in terms of feel-good factor, you will also receive kindness from others, and in a way that was totally unexpected and unrelated.

It is very easy to find a way to do good to others: say something supportive when you instinctively feel someone needs to hear it; offer help without being asked for it; smiled encouragingly; swallow your criticism; listen without judgment; let it slide mistake not assigning blame; a small sacrifice for the benefit of any person in need is greater.

A rule of thumb I apply in my life is to do unto others as I they did to me, and, do to myself as I have done to others. The last part is just as important as the first. It is not good to be consistently good to others and forget to be so yourself. You will be exhausted, and feel less able to show kindness to others if you do not fill up your own mind, body and soul on a regular basis.

Being good to yourself means getting your needs met, be gentle with yourself rather than critical when you feel you do not appear at best, forgive yourself when the need arises rather than punishing yourself. When you get into the habit of treating yourself with kindness, it becomes easier to extend that consideration and the behavior of others.
