    Difficult for me at times, I'm not very social and I don't like to talk.

    but I'll hold the door open for you and say thank you.

  • I rewind.

    Being kind is something I try to work at. Some days it is easy, some days not.
    Someone being good to me always puts me right and I like to think I can give that.
    (Sort of like the commercial they used to always play where one person would see someone helping another person and then they would show that person helping someone...and so on.)

    I like kind bud. ;)

    Mr. Chadwick, i just wanted to thank you for this thread. It seems all too often we get caught up in drama here on the AET/forum. Your thread is like a cool refreshing breeze on a hot summer day. Thank you.

    I like it. But in moderation. Being too kind can be a pain in the ass, for the kind person as well as for the receivers of the kindness. But overall I like being kind better than being mean.

    I try to be (usually). I'm not terribly sweet, but I hope I'm kind more often than not (fake kindness is worse than no kindness though, IMO) ... nobody's perfect, but it's good to be reminded to try, and to remember to think about how other people might feel.

    I teach my sons to be kind, even to those who are not kind back. being mean is too easy and solves nothing.

    I try to always be kind. And when I encounter unkind people I "kill them with kindness". Actually, I hope my positive attitude will encourage them to do some self-reflection.

    To me, being kind is a priority. If there's a choice, I usually pick being kind over other options.

    who the hell are you and what have you done with 81?


    yes, I'm kind, sometimes too much. I grew up with one parent who was a tyrant and another who was kind and easy going, I've also found that being kind and respectful will get you further than being an a-hole.

    I'm awesome until you get on my bad side...then, I pretty much have no use for you.

    I am probably too kind, to a fault even. But if you do treat me bad, I am a pro at being passive-aggressive - I will treat you kindly, but somehow you will feel all is not well..... :mrgreen:

    There has been only one person that has made me treat them unkind and that made me feel bad, but I am getting over it.

    I enjoy being kind everyday to anyone that crosses my way. ( not sugery ) just kindness.

    I believe that my day just goes better and I have less stress, if I'm kind.

    Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.
    Mark Twain

    Why not be kind? Life is too short my friends, and a random act of kindness is free and makes all parties involved feel great.

    Great thread - I love you people!!!!
