Its very true that the way to treat others reflects you as a person. I have been making a conscious decision to try and be a kinder person and just try to be a little nicer. So I thought that I would share a few little tips on how I am trying to be a kinder person and what you can do to try and be a little kinder.
This is seriously difficult; I’ll be the first to admit that. But trying to avoid gossip is a seriously good way to just be a little kinder. Don’t spread things that you know are only rumors, and if you hear something that you know isn’t true, set people straight and let them know the truth. I know that if someone was spreading nasty things about you, you would like someone to have your back. So try and be the better person here and don’t spread gossip.
This is something that comes to me quite naturally, but not everyone has empathy. If you are one of the people who struggle, just try to picture yourself in that situation and think about how you would feel if that was happening to you. Showing someone empathy is such a kind thing to do and will make that person feel closer to you for being so nice to them.
I saw a quote the other day which I thought was really sweet ‘if everything you said was tattooed on your body, how pretty would you be then?’ I think this is something to bear in mind every time you say something. Just think about what impression people would have of you with what you say and how you would feel if someone said it to you. Try and be more mindful with what you say and what you do.
Let it go
So many petty people hold grudges and it only makes you seem like a worst person. Stop holding grudges and just let things go. If someone isn’t kind to you, don’t let their behavior reflect on you. Be kind and let the little things go.
Surround yourself in positivity
Surrounding yourself with positive people and positive energy will only lead to you absorbing the energy. By doing this you will become a kinder and more positive person.
