    I used to think the kindest people I knew were the people pleasers, until I realized a lot of that acquiescing behavior was a trauma response. Now, I believe the kindest people I know are the ones who have the courage to be honest with themselves and others, and stand up for what they believe.

    Kindness without honesty is manipulation.
    Honesty without kindness is brutality.

    My husband is the kindest person I know. He always has other peoples thoughts and feeling ahead of his own, even when wronged by others. Any decision or plan he has, he looks at how the other people involved will be impacted. His resilient attitude in his kindness is something to live by. I struggle when people have done me wrong or have a bad attitude, I find it very hard to show kindness towards them. I know I need to do better in this aspect of life. We never know what others are experiencing or going through at this time in their life.

    An ex, who would listen me and just be there with me. No matter what I said, it was like I was talking to a wall. In times it made me mad, but realising that someone was just listening and accepting me was groundbreaking.

    So advice, listen to people. Let them vent if they need to, don’t trow your “solutions” they need attention and feeling of acceptance, not a fix.

    My chief of the other department I am working for. He looks after his staff in an extraordinary caring way, which leads to a wholehearted engagement for our work. His loving-kind and honest being with us truly is a role model and the outcome of our shared efforts gives joy in return in many respects.

    One of the kindest people I know was one of my former coworkers. She had a quiet grace for others that she radiated. I can learn from her patience and love that she consistently showed others.

    There are so many, including the community Volunteers who share their time and commitment to support and enrich the lives of others with their kindness.

    Long list here but to name a few, my honey, he is firm but always kind and patient with people, but especially me, wonderful quality.

    My neighbors, when I first became ill she brought food and flowers and her husband took my garbage out for over a year, even when I asked them not to they persisted, I had to learn how to let others care for me.

    All people who have helped me learn to be the person I am today, for me, I want to pay that forward.

    My Grandmother was one of the kindest people I have known. Not only did I feel loved unconditionally, I felt seen….she was never too busy to sit and listen with her full attention…I was never too young to be treated as a important part of any conversation. What have I learned…the importance of the simple acts of kindness…listening, sharing a cup of tea, being seen and feeling loved.

    My friend Kristi and my sister Connie. Both are kind and caring and always there for me. I do see them as role models for me as I tend to have a more reactive personality. They remind me to slow down, breathe, and just listen.

    My cousin Lisa, who is like a sister to me. She always has a smile on her face, is joy filled and ready to help at any time. I say she is a “saint”.
    What can I learn from her kindness? It is contagious. She makes me want to be kinder & gentler too. ❤️

    Kindness: the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate.

    I have so many people in my life that are kind. But I think Alma is one of the kindest. Often times she’ll ask if I want food that she’s made and drop it off. Or juts randomly drop gifts off. She’s godmother to Amelia and she is very thoughtful and generous on her birthdays and Christmas. She doesn’t skimp. She’s very thoughtful too. It’s her birthday coming up! I would like to return the kindness that she’s shown me over the years. She helped throw a baby shower for Amelia, for Manny.. and she’s just been so generous. I can learn that thoughtfulness of others really makes an impact on how they feel and communicates to the receiver that they are loved and not forgotten. 🙂 I can incorporate being kind to my kids and immediate family as well as my close friends that I think I often take for granted.

    My next door neighbors. They truly live the scripture that says to take care of widows and orphans. They are not spring chickens. They are in their late 80’s but they hover over me because I live alone. They clear my yard of leaves in the fall, they snow blow my sidewalks in the winter, they check on me regularly and welcome me whenever I knock on their door.

    My husband. He is so compassionate and caring and will help people he knows and doesn’t know. He does not have an unkind bone in his body.
