I am kind and loving.

We can be quick to notice when someone is thoughtless or unpleasant. I may judge and condemn their actions.

Instead, I can envision what difficulties they may be experiencing and treat them with the kindness I wish I were receiving.

When I understand that another’s insult is often due to their feeling of hurt or inadequacy, I am kind and loving.

    Putting yourself in someone else’s shoes makes it possible to treat them the way you’d want to be treated. Kindness goes a long way to defusing many situations, too.

  2. That’s a very gracious approach. We might not know what’s going on with the other person but it’s worth making the effort to find out.

  3. To a degree this could be seen as the same as “Turn the other cheek” – although this particular phrase never made sense to me – it seemed you were being a victim. But actively engaging in completely the opposite manner to which the offending person is behaving can be a shock, and just the kind of trigger to change their behaviour. So long as it comes genuinely and from the heart.

  4. That is absolutely nice… Compassion and Empathy rules 🙂

    With age comes wisdom and with wisdom comes the ability to see beyond the superficial and to give people the benefit of the doubt – you’re right, that is true kindness (btw I love your banner pic)
