So often we go out and we move in between the crowd, we don't care what is going on with the person next to us. Yes, it is only right that we mind our business that is a sure way of living peacefully and that is another way of making others feel neglect.
Some mornings are bad, we wake with terrible moods, bad energy, we end up at the bus stop an innocent soul comes by and mistakenly steps on our clean shoes, the person repeats the 'sorry' anthem over a thousand times yet we feel the need to curse,we choose to make them victims or pass across heavy words that might contribute in making the person's life more complicated.
The hundreds of people we encounter in a month all have issues and there are 'fragile people' going through hell we don't know and there are others that choose not to care and smile it away! Someone offends you and you curse stupid, useless,worthless or a simple hiss could lead in resulting agony in a person's heart,simple words of insults cause terrible pains.
There are upsetting human beings and it is only luck that would have you leave home and not meet two before reaching your landmark. However there are situations that call for deep thoughts and careful use of words. Someone could decide to attack you showering you with a bundle of hard words and you choose to smile and walk away! It does not reflect weakness, it reflects strength and pure respect for who you are.
A smile at the person sitting next to you goes a long way, it does not necessarily results to unwanted dialogue.
Kindness is a virtue it is not only reflected by giving through gifts, your smile is a gift, your hello is a gift,you thank you, please and I am sorry might not seem to matter but the are gifts, little gifts that do big wonders in the life of others!
