So, before you go searching to see if there really is a city in Germany named “Kindness And Compassion”, I want to let you know that no such city exists. The header was simply a ploy to get you to say, “What? There’s a city named ‘Kindness and Compassion’? I’ll have to click on that link to see what’s up!”
Well, there isn’t. Now I guess you have to read what I have to say.
If we show a little kindness and compassion each day then perhaps wonderful things will start happening.
For so long I was an introvert. I kept to myself, put my head down and chose not to interact with people. I’m not saying I was rude or insensitive but I honestly made a conscious decision to NOT go out of my way to engage with people. Now, in both my personal and professional life, I realize that I won’t make it anywhere without some sort of social interaction.
I’ve always been a caring person to those who mean something to me. It is only until recently that I’ve tried to start caring about those who have no real prominence in my life i.e. the lady in front of me in the checkout line, that dude with the crying kid in the movie theater or even that barking dog that lives next door that won’t shut the hell up.
What I was failing to realize was what kindness and compassion does for me OUTSIDE of my own little bubble. The world craves kindness, compassion and love.
And not just the world… but you and I do too.
