Kindness is defined as the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate. It is showing concern about the well-being and feelings of others. What does kindness look like? Refuse to tease or ridicule others. Show concern when someone is sad. Do things that meet the needs of others. Take care of the environment. Treat everyone fairly. Do things that make others happy just because you want them to be happy.
Yesterday we learned that kindness is showing concern about the well-being and feelings of others. Affection, gentleness, warmth, concern, and care are words that are associated with kindness. Being kind often requires courage and strength. Kindness is an interpersonal skill.
What does kindness sound like? People who are kind may say things like: How can I help? Do you want to join us? You can go first. I’m sorry that I hurt your feelings. Are you okay? Kindness is all about doing things that will make others happier.
Three important parts of kindness are respect, caring, and helpfulness.
“As a kind person, I am caring, helpful and generous to everyone. I am considerate and always think about how my conduct affects others. I care how others feel and I am giving and forgiving. As a kind person, I do good deeds without the thought of reward. I have compassion and empathy for others.” Let’s practice kindness over your long weekend.
