On Kindness, Positivity and Others

I was browsing through my instagram feed earlier and saw a post from one popular instagramer about kindness. She said something like ‘be kind to people. The world needs more kind people.’

So I just suddenly thought of being kind and how to be kind and maybe post about kindness too and spread some love and positivity and maybe, try to make this world a little bit better than it is.

But I can’t. I just can’t.

How can I talk about kindness if I can’t even be kind.

I live in this island where there are more or less 200 people. And out of 200, there are two people who I can’t be kind to. One obnoxious person who makes the word obnoxious an understatement and one who did me wrong. How can I talk about kindness if I can’t even forgive, if I can’t even remove hatred from within me.

Kindness should come from the heart and kindness should be given to everyone regardless if they need it or not. At this point of time, I only choose who I want to be kind to. Is this kindness at all?

Lately I was thinking about the posts that I publish, about the things I write here.

I was thinking of revamping my posts a bit, like start writing inspiring posts about kindness and positivity rather than my usual complaints about work and life so my dear readers can get something out of what they read.

But with this hatred inside, I just can’t write something nice. If I try to, it feels like I’m faking, I’m fooling no one else but myself.

I think before I should try hoping to make this world a kinder place, I should first learn how to be kind to the unkind. But that’s the most challenging part of being kind, isn’t it?

So as of now I can only hope, to be kinder, and later on be better.

As of now, I can only hope.

  1. Being kind 100% of the time is hard especially when it comes to people who are downright annoying. One thing I’ve learned in my journey to kindness is if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it. I think one aspect of being kind is to train our minds to also think kindly. Maybe the reason why these people are a pain in the butts is because they are experiencing shit in their lives. We can’t always be kind, it’s human nature, but we can control how much negativity which can lead to unkindness we can share to the world. So ayun, I think if you start to train your brain to see the positive by posting more kindness related posts, it’ll eventually follow that your outlook on life changes too! Ganon ginagawa ko, I don’t know if you noticed, but I don’t even rant on my blog anymore, lol. It’s these simple steps that I take to be more in control of my life outlook! KAYA AYSA GO NA, SHARE SOME POSITIVITY AND KINDNESS KAHIT DI MO BET. ❀

    1. Eow Kat salamat sa comment. Ang haba haha. Alam mo, ginagawa ko na din literally na kapag walang masabing maganda ay wag na lang magsalita. Ang problema nagshushutdown na lang ako totally at di na ako nagsasalita maghapon literally hanggang makauwi sa room. At the most napagsaabihan kl ng sama ng loob ay si hubby through chat but other than that, wala na akong ibang nakakausap at nakikimkim lang lahat. Outlet ko na lang talaga ang pagsusulat dahil baka pag hindi ko nailabas sa panulat ang sama ng loob ko, baka magkaroon na ko ng imaginary friends hahaha. Anyway, napansin ko nga din na puro positive ang sinusulat mo. Susubukan ko din Kat 😊😊😊😊😊 kahit naiinggit ako sayo dahil nakakapagbake ka hahaha ako hinde

  2. Truth be told, mahirap talaga maging mabait sa lahat ng tao lalo pag alam mo tine take advantage ba yung kabaitan mo pero isipin mo na lang na at least ikaw wala kang dinadala na di maganda sa loob mo hehe. Parang ang tagal na nating di naguusap Aysa haha.

  3. Being kind is not about being fake, that is true. It’s about not spreading negativity and looking at things from a different perspective. There will always be people you find challenging and the trick is to wish them well and let them get on with lives without them ruining yours. We are all human beings and we are all flawed by design, so don’t beat yourself up. Being kind to yourself is just as important as being kind to others. ❀️
