Over the course of a normal day, we’re a lot of things. We’re stressed, we’re tired, and we’re just trying to get by. But how often are we kind?
Probably not as often as we should be. Life is hard, and it’s easy to get so caught up in day-to-day stress that we close ourselves off.
But everyone on the outside is struggling, too. It sometimes seems like hardship is the great equalizer, which is why it’s important to acknowledge the Good Samaritans who pay it forward to those in need. The folks over at Whisper asked people to anonymously share small acts of kindness that they’ve performed in the past, and the resulting list is a testament to the power of compassion.
The next time you’re feeling down, try lifting yourself up by empowering someone else in the process. You’ve heard the saying that a rising tide raises all boats, so why not apply that to your daily interactions? One seemingly insignificant act can create a chain reaction of the best kind.
