Kindness counts. In order to build strong and meaningful relationships, we need to treat our loved ones, and strangers, with care and thoughtfulness. People always remember how you made them feel. Here are 4 simple ways you can cultivate kindness and be a spark of positivity in the lives of others.
1) Be more vulnerable
People can be extremely reserved about opening up to others. They may fear rejection, judgment, or appearing weak. Being the first one to put yourself out there and authentically share your feelings and experiences can produce a ripple effect. Vulnerability facilitates human connection.
2) Be curious about others
There are 7.5 billion people in the world right now, and every one of them has their own unique story. People love to feel heard. Ask people about their experiences. Ask them how they’re feeling and why they feel that way. You may be the only person to ask all day.
