I guess life just doesn’t always go as planned? There have been many times that I tried to show kindness, smiled, opened the door, was patient, etc.; and the other person was so rude and mean. I sometimes left so shocked. I believe that many people just show, act, speak, think from their heart. If they are just angry people, they will show it. People just seem rude and sometimes just plain selfish. I remember my first and only customer service job and man did I hate it. Till this day, I feel like what just happened? Working in customer service, really taught me how to not to act. The amount of people that were just childish and rude was crazy. There were times, I felt like everyday, I was scared to go to work because of how rude and mean people were. I have learned though, not to take everything personal. Plus the whole experience taught me so many valuable lessons till this day. That doesn’t mean that people don’t surprise me still with their meanness and rudeness. Sometimes in my mind, I can hear myself saying, “Wow, that person was unnecessarily rude to me?”
Showing kindness is not always easy to do, especially when the other person is not making it so. It’s always easy to be nice to someone who is nice to you. I have had times where people were nice to me and then suddenly mean. In addition, I have had people who might have been frustrated with someone else or something else and then let out their frustration. No matter what, don’t allow others to mistreat you and don’t become an ugly, rude, mean person just because they are. Be the better person. Show kindness no matter what. Learn from every moment that happens to you. Everyday show kindness and don’t be what you dislike seeing in others.
Whatever life takes you, just enjoy your life. Think positive and be positive.
