Comment on The Long Hike to Kindness – Week Two Update by Deborah.
The people I think of as the kindest are those for whom it’s second nature. It’s not even something conscious but some sort of innate need to care for others and their feelings… a sort of consideration I guess.
I’m not like that but sometimes I’m conscious of the need to go out of my way to do something for someone… a friend or stranger and every time I do I wonder why I don’t do it more often. Of course I’m also struck by the fact I feel a little smug or self-congratulatory for doing so and THEN I realise I’ve got a long way to go!
