Experiencing kindness as a child is a major part of being able to practice compassion as an adult. People who have not had families where kindness was the norm tend to be skeptical that it exists because they didn't experience it in their formative years.
Kindness is really just another way of saying that you treat people with love, you care for them as if they are precious and deserve great tenderness and respect. It's the only way to live a truly fulfilling life because, when you treat others well, it tends to create positive vibes in the universe.
People who value self-awareness often think in terms of how to increase the kindness in the world, whether it is by writing about love or challenging injustice. What do you think about experiencing kindness?
