A little kinder than necessary
Kindness is the key to changing the perception of people towards each other and contributing to an empathetic world. One single, sincere compliment has the power to make a difference to someone’s perception of themselves, their life and their view of the world. Taking the time to stop and thank or praise someone (maybe just for something that they do quietly every day, or for making your day better) not only can make individuals feel good about their efforts, but it can inspire a “pay it forward” mentality and encourages others to follow your lead. Something as simple as a smile or hello at people you pass in the street can be a positive connection for both of you.
