    So cute , ordered these rattles for little haribo ( yes he already has a nickname ) ready for when he’s born ❤️

    I dunno if counts. Indirectly trying to be kind. But cause went to Samaritans branch - they gave me a Samaritans card - one with like details of how to contact ect. So I left it on the bus hoping someone who is need of speaking to someone may just pick it up & even just think of it. But now all I can imagine is a bus cleaner getting annoyed of having to pick up another bit of "rubbish". 
    So maybe not that kind lol:////

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.

    Today I helped a man on the tube. He got on the wrong tube, was really confused and didn't understand. I took him to the right tube line and made sure he knew where he was going.

    Something small to do but I did it because I'm kind and always around to help people, no matter who it is

    I'm crying so much right now. So a year ago when I was made homeless and then found my feet ( where I'm living now) I reached out to a stranger and wrote a letter about how shit things where. Today I got a delivery and I'm crying so much. She sent me a package. I'm so grateful that someone actually cares about me. Im crying so much

    Got these in the post today from a friend and love them! 😁 hoping the self harm alternatives help 🤞 and the journal to show that even the small achievements are something to be proud of 😊💕

    Every week I buy a bunch of stuff like food, clothing essentials, sanitary products and put them in bags with a message to hand out to the homeless people in my area x Normally stay for a chat too so they have someone to talk to ❤️ There's one particular man that I've been going to for a long time, he talks to himself a lot and I'm forever seeing people make fun of him. I got to know him and he is actually an incredible drawer ✏️

    I fed chicken nuggets to the dogs although I was trying to get them to fuck off at first.

    This evening I received some really wonderful support from another charity focusing on one specific mental health issue.
    I'm really grateful for their kindness and support and I feel I can be a lot more open with these guys because I feel so safe and supported by their kindness!

    A moderator sent from another website sent me a very nice message when he could see that I was struggling.

    I fed the leftover chicken nuggets to my cats as the dogs only ate 4 of the nuggets. I ate 11, gave 4 to the dogs and gave the other 5 to my cats. I never knew that cats like/can eat chicken nuggets. They were inedible for me as it had been 24 hours. Cats were very grateful.

    This thread is so heartwarming!


    I love the care packages that you guys have been giving and receiving! I've sent a few cards recently just with little messages to let people know that they're not alone (one was going through a break up and another had exam stress) and it really does make a difference so it's so nice to see people here experiencing it too! <3

    The police can be so helpful and understanding at times of need!  They always do their best with the limited resources and shortage of staff. I'm glad they are helping you find your dad and I hope he's found safe and well soon

    I gave my Mum a costa voucher and milktray for doing her job interview  <3 
    And I gave my Mum and Dad chocolate for paying for me to go on holiday, but it may not count because they were way more kind  <3

    Bless old people, this old lady saw me buying a raspberry muffin and was saying she might get one for later but better not, as she was leaving she went to the counter but there was none left 🙁 (I hadn't eaten mine as was saving it for later) so caught her on the way out and gave her mine, she was nearly in tears! She was so thankful, I mentioned that everyone deserves a treat now and again 😊
