Kindness isn't a privelege or a right. Kindness is a gift, a gift you hope you will recieve but should never assume you're entitled to recieve it.

You should never do the right thing just because it's the right thing to do, but because it makes you feel good. Showing complete strangers kindness is very rewarding, and if they're just nasty at heart and tell you to fuck off, well, at least you tried. And who knows, maybe that person will keep remembering what you said... maybe it'll sink in over time.

Some people are just having a bad day. Taking it out on others isn't really the best thing to do. If you go to the store, and the clerk says, "how are you?" You've been having the worse day of your life. What do you do? Do you snap at them and tell them to mind their own business? Do you lie and say you're fine? Well, the latter is acceptable, seeing as how you've no idea who the clerk is. Or you could say honestly that your day isn't so great. The clerk says, "if you don't mind me asking, what's wrong?" You've already been shown kindness. This person is genuinely conscerned about your mood. You could say that you'd rather not talk about it, or you can tell the clerk.You may end up leaving the store feeling much happier, for the clerk may give you words of encouragement. Plus, it's always nice to vent.

"If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always gotten."

People wonder why every one of their friends left them. Well, chances are, those people were unkind and took them for granted. These are the type of people who respond to kindness with harsh insults. Sometimes they can't even take a compliment.

We get frustrated. If you try to give your kindness to someone who refuses it, you get mad. That person doesn't deserve your kindness, and it's gonna kick them in the ass one day for being suck a dick. Didn't your parents ever tell you, "if you're bad this year, you'll get coal in your stocking." Well, keep wondering why you get coal all the time. Maybe you'll realize you're not really the nicest person.

Kind people were given this gift at birth. A strong heart to love as much as they can. Some people have to learn it the hard way. Either way, you never have the right to receive kindness because, what if you're a brat? Selfish people don't get such nice gifts.

It's perfectly natural to be nasty and mean when the occasion is right. You've tried to be nice to someone because that's who you are, and they blow up in your face. Well, as a human, you DO have a right to shoot back and defend yourself. Someone is being mean to your friend. Time to defend your dear companion. Hopefully your friend told you the true story of the person attacking them.

Don't just be nice to expect it in return. Be nice because seeing other people smile makes you happy.

"We must all face the choice between what is right and what is easy."

Your life will be easy if you treat others right. But, even if being a bitch is easy, it will definitely complicate your life. You'll find it's pretty easy to do the right thing.

Some people just god damn don't like each other. So what? Ignore them if you can't stand being nice to them. It's not worth it.

Kindness is not a right.

Kindness is a blessing.
sorry if there are any spelling mistakes. i didn't proofread it.

Well written, kindness should not be taken for granted.

Well...I wouldn't exactly agree with that...
But overall, very well done!

T_T what nice friends. see, those aren't true friends. i have friends that like a lot of things i hate, but we still love each other. but they say you don't meet true friends until you're out of highschool. it was true for me, except sempai, whom i've been best friends with since my sphomore year

I know right? Then again, in this...'wonderful' little town of mine, everyone is the same, so there's no point in my hoping for anything. The best I can do is get through school and get the hell outa here. Until then, the internet and my animals should do fine.
I'm glad you found such a good friend though, those are really hard to find ^^

Here it's either their complete sluts (No, I'm not kidding) or their religious to extreme. And I mean extreme as an understatement. There's just no place for neutrals to fit in at all *sigh*

I enjoyed most of this except for when you said that we should expect to receive kindness, mostly because I was raised to believe in equivilent exchange that pretty much says that you shouldn't receive anything if you haven't given anything. I've always been a very kind person to complete strangers because of the golden principal that states to not do unto others as you would not have others do unto you, but when it comes to people that I know much about, I treat them as they had decided to not only treat myself but as they decide to treat everyone they meet...i've lost track of where I was going with this, so pretty much my message is that nobody should expect to be treated to anything if they haven't done anything to earn it. And one of your typeos made me laugh.
