Choosing the path of kindness can help break down barriers around people. It can empower those who are afraid. Quiet those who are angry. Use it to reach out to the lonely. Give hope to those who feel hopeless. Give love to those who feel unlovable. Draw out those who are shy. Include those who feel isolated. Comfort the sad.
In showing kindness to just one person, it can continue to multiply. You have the ability to choose kindness in all situations; think about the outcomes, if you were to make that choice. The world would be different for those around you. In choosing kindness, you will also be rewarded with inner peace, warmth, and love.
