Abstract:

Rediscover kindness and rediscover your worth Have you ever helped someone out of instinct, because not helping never even occurred to you' Remember how surprised you were at their gratitude' It is easy to feel like kindness and gratitude are becoming rare in the world today, but the truth is that it is all around you - you just need to learn how to see it. Kindness shows you how to do just that, and inspires you to take part with tips, ideas, recommendations and advice. You will learn to see yourself and your surroundings in a kinder, happier way. Kindness is not people-pleasing; people-pleasing comes from a place of anxiety, while kindness is borne out of empathy. Kindness expects no reward or recognition, and is just as beneficial to the giver as the receiver. Kindness can be a grand gesture, or something as simple as a smile. It can be quiet or loud, simple or complex. This book helps you internalise the fundamental truth that kindness does not require wealth or possessions, or material giving at all - whatever you have to offer is enough, and it may just change someone's life. Learn how to: -See the silver lining and take care of yourself in difficult times.-Do and say kind things when you're not feeling very kindly.-Sustain the warm feelings that come from helping others.-Express kindness even when other people are rude or critical.-Enjoy self-care and treating yourself. Opportunities to be kind present themselves every day, and here you'll learn how to notice them. Your self-esteem and confidence will grow as you discover the pure joy of helping others, and you'll feel more comfortable allowing others to help you. In a world where kindness seems to get lost in the shuffle of worry, anxiety, aggression and worse, Kindness shows you how to bring it back into the light.
