  1. Yes, the world would be a such better place if only people were nice to each other.

    There are many places where people seem unable or unwilling to be kind that they get away with; because people aren’t able to fight back. It would be fantastic if people would at least try to be civilised to each other, but I’m not going to hold my breath. Life isn’t always fair, but it’s even worse to take it out on everyone else because of it.

    There are things that you can change, but life isn’t ever perfect, which people seem to expect. I try very hard not to be cynical, but I have seen the worst that humanity has to offer; so I can’t be as blind as so many people choose to be.

    1. Thanks Randy. Your first sentence rings true and I agree; but unfortunately, unless we all choose to change and are kind, there will always be more of the same.

      It seriously doesn’t cost anything to be kind. Just such a shame we end up having to having to look or even ask for it to happen.

  2. I’ve always thought that kindness made memories of what people think of you. I know it certainly captures the depth of who we really are.
