To tell you the truth, I think all human being should at least have kindness as their standard of living. I always thought that being human, we need to be kind. That is what probably every religion taught us. Thus I think everybody else would exactly be kind.
Life slaps me hard.
Being kind ain’t that easy!
In this pandemic, I learned that I took kindness for granted.
I should have been grateful for everyone that still choosing kindness.
Let me tell you a story.
On a breezy Saturday evening last month, while I am on my bike.
6 PM. It started to get dark.
I bought one mineral water from small shop far-far-far-away from my home. To get there, it took one and half hour. Yes I know it’s late, next time I will only go on the bike in the morning.
WHY AM I doing this? I don’t know. Maybe I have extra energy to spend.
At first, I don’t really get scared, since around Saturday night, couples usually go out and the streets would be crowded.
But then… I remember… to go back home I will pass by rubber plantation. It is even darker, the street got no light, and the chance of criminal is higher than in any places.
Anyway, I still managed my fear and say to myself “everything will be fine”
DO YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENED? It is not fine.
IT IS SCARY!!!
And when you think its scary, scary things occurred. I imagined things. OVERTHINK IT IS.
It is too painful to go through it alone, suddenly….. someone from the small shop earlier come followed me using his motorcycle and said “Are you alone? I will accompany you until the end of this street, REST ASSURE! I AM NOT SOME CRIMINAL!!”
He calmly says that. I believe what he says because he comes alone and I saw him at the small shop and I got the look at his eyes, he is saying the truth!
I am so grateful, and I could breathe easier.
I don’t know who you are but thank you again for your kindness. I know it’s easy to just ignore things. But you choose kindness.
Kindness seems too overrated. Everyone is being kind. YOU KNOW WHAT? In fact, it is underrated!
I beg you, the one that read this, someone might really need your kindness, and that story about kindness might change someone.
Do you remember Joker? Yes, that person who constantly being hurt. We always say, “all you need is a little push.”
HMMM.. Could you be the pull? Pulling everyone closer to be more kind?
If you do that, I promise you, you always got my heart!
Again and again. Thank you for your kindness.
