Day 118: Remaining Kind
“Be kind to unkind people. They need it most.” Ashleigh Brilliant
Learning to remain kind through challenging situations can be difficult. Remaining kind when someone is shouting at you or when you are in a hurry can feel downright impossible. Think of a situation that really gets you upset, can you learn to remain kind in the face of unkind people, unpleasant situations, and under pressure? Remaining kind is definitely difficult, but completely achievable through practice. There are certain tactics that can work. Think of having a kindness tool chest that helps you when you just want to shout back. Try smiling, walking away, taking 3 deep breaths, taking a time out or pour on an extra thick layer of kindness. What helps me is to think of the situation almost as a game. I try to have fun with it and see if I can change the situation or the person with kindness. See what you can do to keep spreading Kindness!
