kindness 4

So, something has been playing on my mind for a while now, and that thing is on the subject of kindness, being kind and being a good person in general.

If the last few years have taught me anything in life, it’s that being a good person counts for so much. It costs absolutely nothing to show a bit of kindness and just simply being nice can really have a positive effect on those around you.
Recently, there have been a few situations in my life where people have been less than kind, or have just made things difficult when there is really no need. It’s not difficult to be a good person, it makes you feel better personally and if nothing else, it’s just good karma. I am a big believer that what goes around comes around and being a good person can only bring even more good things to your life and vice versa.

For a while now, there have been people in my life that do nothing but try and make things difficult for us and it got to the point where I wasn’t writing about things I wanted to share on my blog because I was worried about what they might think. I made the mistake of letting said people get to me which only caused myself stress but I’ve finally come to the point in my life where I just don’t care what other people think anymore. I will share as little or as much of my life as I see necessary. I just want to be 100% happy as much as possible and I’m not going to let other people’s opinions or actions get in the way of that.

I left my previous job due to unkind people whom I decided I would rather not spend the majority of my time being around. That was a really tough decision to make because I absolutely loved my job, it was just unfortunate that a small number of people made it so unbearable that I ended up being so stressed that I’d literally take days off to get away from it all. I am really lucky to now have a job in which everyone I work with are genuinely lovely people and although the job itself isn’t necessarily what I want to be doing in the long run, the people I work with are so nice it just makes it all pretty dreamy!

I’ll be honest, this post has come about because I’ve just had enough of other people putting me and the people I love down and with international kindness day having passed recently, I felt it the perfect time to air my thoughts on the subject! Life really is too short to dwell on other people’s opinions and jealousy and their spiteful actions really do only reflect on them, so, you do you and ignore the people who don’t like it, after all, the people who matter don’t mind and the people that mind, don’t matter!

Unfortunately, I know some of the difficult people in my life will never stop wanting to be difficult but I’m officially over the drama, life is far too short for that nonsense!


In a world where you can be anything, be kind!
