Oh my gosh people, be nice to your waiter/waitress, it’s not their fault that your food is cold or if it’s under cooked. Be nice to the cashiers who are still training and can’t ring up your items as quickly as you want. If a stranger smiles and says hello to you, smile and say hello back! It’s just common courtesy, I don’t understand why people have to be so rude.
So I was on Facebook, I'm crying, and I'm getting ready to send my goodbyes to everyone, My boyfriend, my 'sister', my closest friends, tell them that its not there fault, and finally, post my suicide note. Right before I start typing, I recieve a message, from a girl named Nicole. I haven't talked to this girl since November and all of a sudden out of the blue she says: Hey you ! you're beautiful and gorgeous in your own way. Don't let anyone make you feel ugly, because your perfect just the way you are . STAY STRONG . This girl literally spared my life, at least for a couple of days, with just one small message on Facebook. Thats all it took, was a little act a kindness, to make a huge difference. My faith in humanity has never been greater. I wish there were more people like her out there.
Heart touching storyOne day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his way through school, found he had only one thin dime left, and he was hungry. He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door. Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water. She thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk He drank it slowly, and then asked, "How much do I owe you?" "You don't owe me anything," she replied "Mother has taught us never to accept payment for a kindness." He said... "Then I thank you from my heart." As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt; stronger physically, but his faith in God and man was strong also. He had been ready to give up and quit. Years later that young woman became critically ill. The local doctors were baffled. They finally sent her to the big city, where they called in specialists to study her rare disease. Dr. Howard Kelly was called in for the consultation. When he heard the name of the town she came from, a strange light filled his eyes. Immediately he rose and went down the hall of the hospital to her room. Dressed in his doctor's gown he went in to see her. He recognized her at once. He went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to save her life. From that day he gave special attention to the case. After a long struggle, the battle was won. Dr. Kelly requested the business office to pass the final bill to him for approval. He looked at it, then wrote something on the edge and the bill was sent to her room. She feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay for it all. Finally, she looked, and something caught her attention on the side as she read these words...... " Paid in full with one glass of milk." (Signed) Dr. Howard Kelly. Tears of joy flooded her eyes as her happy heart prayed: "Thank You, GOD, that Your love has spread abroad through human hearts and hands."
One day I want to find a random stranger who I can tell is hurting, and take them out for the day. I want to make them see that there are people who care. I want to talk with them and contemplate God, life, religion, peace, humanity, death, just everything. I want to make them see life is worth living and show them what true kindness and love is like. I want to make a difference in just one persons life.
“ I am slowly learning that some people are not good for me, no matter how much I love them. I deserve someone who is gentle and kind, because my soul is getting tired. Realizing that I deserve something good is one of the first steps. ”
I hate it when people mistake my brother's kindness for weakness. In reality he is stronger than all of them combined and nicer than they will ever become. No one is like my brother. He chooses his friends carefully and stands by them. He brushes things aside even though he despises doing it. He is loyal, honest, smart, strong, and kind. No one should disrespect him, for he is worth keeping by your side.

“ Don't you dare, for one minute, believe that my kindness makes me anything but insurmountable. I did not unzip my chest to every kind of hurt, and stagger back, wounded and alive, just to hear you call me weak for trying. ”
