Kindness – more than just a behavior!

“What is making you help her? What she did to you was extremely wrong and unjust. What you’re doing now is wrong for yourself.” My friend said. 

“Kindness it is. I don’t care if I’m doing right or wrong, I know she needs me, and I can help her out at this moment. That’s all,” I said.

This was a conversation between my friend and me when I stretched myself to help one of the colleagues who did wrong to me in the past.

We often fall into the trap of being right or wrong for ourselves by keeping things in mind, such as someone did wrong to us, so should we help him/her out or not?

This happens because we always try to make our choice or decision right for ourselves. While proving ourselves right, we may become unkind to others by forgetting that we need to be kind first. Kindness is above everything.

Kindness is more than just behavior. It is marked by acts of generosity, consideration, or concern for others without expecting praise or reward.

Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, a famous spiritual and motivational speaker from America had said that,

When given a choice between being right and being kind, choose kind.

Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

We all have insecurities of being wrong on occasions. To mitigate those insecurities, we try to make decisions that apparently seem right to us but may not necessarily be kind or compassionate. 

When we have hated discussions, arguments, or quarrels with others, we mostly break hearts or make the environment hostile just because we want to prove ourselves right. Still, if we take a stand of being kind, we can undoubtedly avoid misunderstanding, negativity, and bitterness of situations. 

If we stop worrying about right or wrong and keep being kind, it will undoubtedly lead to the right decision.

Therefore, when you encounter situations where you want to prove yourself right or be kind, be kind. Your kindness may prove very significant for someone, and that may change his/her view forever in life. He/she could spread kindness, and the chain will go on.

We as a society need kindness. Kindness is an essential skill because it positively affects both ends. Kindness is suitable for a person as well as society to flourish. 

Just be kind, and you’ll always be right!
