Kindness is all about being warmhearted and concerned, at times, even sympathetic, right? Wrong! There are two caveats. Firstly, being kind to someone is a one way act without any expectations or a trade-off. If there is an expectation of reciprocity it is not kindness, it is a business deal. Lastly, being kind to only those who know you is an act of mutuality. It is about going out of the way for those who we don’t know and would probably never come across again which needs to be taught to our kids. Let our kids know that making someone’s life happy makes this world a better place.
Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see. Mark Twain
