” Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see”.
This quote for me is a very important one. And to be honest, it speaks for itself. The world is changing and there is not a lot of kindness in this world. You have to search for it. I think that kindness has to do also with education. Not everyone has had a good education. And it happens that someone who didn’t have had an education but is more educated then his parents. I don’t know if that has to do with the character of a person or the soul, the mind. Kindness is a big word but I think that everybody can give you an example of kindness. For example: When you are sitting in the bus. Enters an old lady in the bus. Do you stand up for her? Or for a woman who is pregnant? You give your place to them? Do you open the door of the car for your father or your mother? Do you say please or thank you? Politeness! Kindness and politeness are similar. Both in my eyes have to do with education! Both you don’t see a lot these days.
When I am searching for the good words, it’s always tricky but I found these words. Attentive, thoughtful and considerate! These three words are connected with kindness. Attentive for example. You are in a shop and you see a mother with a buggy in front of the door. If you are attentive, you will open the door for the mother. That is very kind and thoughtful of you! An other example. You’re are working in the office. You are thirsty and would like to have a tea. You ask your colleague who is next to you, if you could get also something to drink for her. That is very considerate or kind of you!
To be kind can be so easy. But some people don’t see it! Some people don’t have the balls for it! Some people don’t care and think only about themselves. Manners are so easy to learn and to have. Be kind and helpful to people! People are afraid to ask because of the reaction of the people. To be honest sometimes I don’t want ask either because of the reaction of people.
When you are in line in the supermarket for paying your groceries, there is always someone who is trying to be the first in line. You can make a big deal of it but it’s better to leave it. Because there are people who will never see what kindness means.
You can make someone’s day so much more beautiful with your kindness. That you don’t even know. We cannot look inside of someone’s head, life or souls. But think about the quote. Somebody who is blind can see kindness. Someone who is deaf can hear kindness. Helping someone with getting out of the bus who is blind. Helping someone who is deaf by learning their language that you can help them anytime. But most of all have respect for them. For example. Their are young people who are making videos and they put them on the internet. They want to see the reaction of people when they are playing that they are blind or deaf and are struggling. You can laugh about these videos but then you’re are really an asshole! Or you can learn from these videos. Because they are opening your eyes with these videos! The world isn’t that kind for people who are struggling! Wake up everybody!
“I think probably kindness is my number one attribute in a human being. I’ll put it before any of the things like courage, or bravery, or generosity, or anything else… Kindness—that simple word. To be kind—it covers everything, to my mind. If you’re kind that’s it.” —Roald Dahl.
I will leave you with this quote of Roald Dahl. Remember, just think about it and write to you soon!
