Kindness

Heyy,

So thought could have a thread for how others have been kind to us or ways we have been kind for someone else, family member friend, stranger or anyone. Think would be lovely to read. 

 

The other day I was in Boots at the No7 make up part and someone gave me one of those voucher thingys that comes on with the boots receipt sometimes. maybe they didnt think that much of it - i think it was just lovely thing to do as its not something they needed to do but did anyway instead of like throwing in the bin or something. And i did actually use it.  
“And when they look at you, they won't see everything you've been through. They won't see the **** that turned to scars that began to fade with time. They won't see the heartbreaking things that shook up and changed your entire world. They won't know how many tears you cried or even what it was you were crying about. They won't see how strong you had to be because you had no other choice. What they will see though is how compassionate you are because you experienced pain. What they will see is how kind you are because you experienced how cruel the world is. What they will see is how good you are because you've seen how bad things or people can be. The difference between you and your experiences are who you choose to be, despite everything that could have turned you cold and unkind.You are the good the world needs and the best of us.” ~ Kirsten Corley

    Today one of the girls in class gave me a chocolate lolly and a bag of haribo.

    And I moved upstairs on the bus despite my anxiety of being up there so the old people could sit downstairs.

    Small but lovely gestures :)

    Someone in the arcade the other day decided they didn’t want their tickets they collected and gave them to me, it was so lovely of them and I am so grateful for that. 

    i bought my little brother a cookie he had been wanting to try for so long, because I love him so much I thought I would buy him the three pack.
    In the arcade, a lady was on her own and couldn’t stand by her machine and go and get the coins so I offered to go to the machine for her.

    Only a small thing lol. But gave £1 to someone who was asking they need it for the bus. That was literally my last pound for this month lol. But Not including the money I’m borrowing of my sister ahah til next Friday . My sister is always like he asks everyone for bus money so never give it to him. But I mean I do anyway eventho I know he never gets on the bus but if he’s asking for one pound from people he clearly needs it. Hoping it’s not for drugs tho.

    Don't know how I didn't notice this thread before, but these are so uplifting.

    A friend of mine sent homemade vegan brownies in the post recently because they knew I was a bit stressed and worn down. :)

    I was walking my mom's dog today when I was about to pass a guy who had dogs himself (my mom's dog barks like mad at any dog or noise ever). So I stepped into the road so we could pass each other, and he was like, "I'll cross over and you go on the pavement" :blush: I don't know him but I pass him sometimes while on the route, super nice man.
