Kindness Always Wins: Why "Be Nice" Matters More Than Ever
Updated: Mar 9, 2022
We believe that teaching our children to tap into their 'kindness superpowers' can indeed change the world, one kind deed at a time. So in this blog post, we want to talk about why being kind matters more than ever. It's not just because it feels as though the world needs more of it these days, but because we wholeheartedly believe that kindness always wins!
Why Is There A Need For Kindness?
The need for kindness is not a new phenomenon. It has been there since the beginning of time. But it has become more important than ever before because of the changes in society and the world at large.
In this fast-paced, competitive world, we are constantly bombarded with negative messages that force us to compare ourselves to others and make us feel inadequate. Social media posts can make us feel like we are not good enough, success is unattainable, and happiness is a faraway dream.
Kindness is a powerful force that can help us rise above the negative messages we receive and remind us of what matters most in life: love and acceptance for ourselves, as well as for others. And it's not just about being nice or polite. It's about recognizing that we are all connected, that we can't be happy if others are unhappy, and that there are many ways to be kind.
Why Kindness Matters
Violence and hatred have been building up for years and are being seen more often than ever. It's not something that's just happening right now, it's been around for ages.
We need to improve our world by being more aware of the violence and hatred around us. It's hard at first but we owe it to ourselves and each other.
It's hard to believe that people live in a society where violence and hatred are an everyday reality. It's not just something we hear about on the news... it's happening everywhere. This violence and hatred manifest in many different ways including sexual assault, bullying, racial discrimination, abuse, etc. If we want to improve our world we need to be aware of the problems around us and work together to find solutions.
How Can We Practice Kindness in Everyday Life and Impact the World?
We often take the power of kindness for granted. We do this without thinking about the impact it has on others. However, there are many ways in which you can practice kindness and make a difference in the world.
You can be kind to your family, friends, and neighbours. You can be kind to people who are different from you. You can help people in need or donate your time or resources to charities or organisations that work towards the greater good.
Throughout the day, we can practice kindness. A person can be kind to themselves and others by being mindful of their thoughts and actions. They can also be kind by recognizing the needs of others and meeting those needs with compassion.
The possibilities are endless when it comes to practising kindness and making a difference in the world!
