Have you ever been yelled at by someone for no reason? It will make you feel worse. Instead, you will only encourage them to continue their mean behavior. And the last thing you need is to spread their nastiness. Here are some ways you can be kind to people without any reason.
Be a good friend to others. Avoid being around someone who is mean. If possible, walk away or do something else if you can. Although you might feel bad, your actions will help to diffuse the situation. Show empathy whenever possible. If you can’t stand a person being rude, simply walk away. This will make others feel better. You will feel better.
Avoid being mean. People have different priorities. They prioritize their success over empathy and love. When they feel mean, they are more likely to do it again, fueling the hateful cycle. When you’re able to stop being mean to others, you can prevent the cycle of meanness. Remember that negative responses only fuel hatred and ill will. This will make people realize that they’re not alone in their negative behavior.
Be kind to everyone that you meet. This goes beyond greeting the mail carrier and ringing up your groceries. It also extends to raising kind children. Try to hold the door for multiple people at the same time. If possible, let someone who’s behind you have “the last one” to get out. And finally, try to stop and help someone who is clearly struggling. Perhaps you’ve seen a mom crazily juggling her groceries and trying to keep her toddler from running off with them. Help her!
