KINDNESS AND EMPATHY.
Although by no means perfect myself and often making glaring mistakes at home, I do always try myself to be caring and empathetic towards everyone. Sometimes I have wondered whether this is a strength or a weakness as it does often come with its own heartache. The cornerstone of my ideas is really based on kindness. I wonder if at some point I will be criticised for this, but I can only try my best.
I often notice in my day to day dealings that people are not always naturally kind and empathetic towards others. People are often intolerant, impatient. Even in jobs dealing with others and professing knowledge, often just genuine human kindness is lacking..for example when my dd went to school briefly and I was not allowed to walk her back to the class room..why?
I have noticed that this is an age we are living in that wants a diagnosis for everything in order that a 'professional' can treat it..without 'professional' input people often shy away from even the simplest form of kindness or understanding. What happened to just treating people as individuals and interacting with them as the unique person that they are..with or without lables?
