“Today I bent the truth to be kind, and I have no regret, for I am far surer of what is kind than I am of what is true.”
Ain’t it so – it’s hard to know what is true, but it’s easy to know what is kind.
Most people are easy to treat politely but admittedly some are a little hard to be nice to.
But what if, just what if we treat everyone with politeness?! Yes, even those who are rude to you. Especially those who are rude to you?
What if we declare we are going to treat them nice not because they deserve it and not because they are nice, but because we are?
We are nice, so we treat people nice. Even difficult people.
Sounds like something we learned in kindergarten, eh?
Treating people nicely, it’s just one more way you can live Your Life, Unlimited!
