Never define yourself by your relationship status, your income, or your looks. It’s your generosity, kindness, and compassion that counts.

The world isn’t filled with ‘haters’ and ‘toxic people.’ It’s filled with people who are hurting and trying, ineffectively, to give themselves some relief. So distance yourself if you must, but try to do it with empathy, not judgment. The only cure for ‘haters’ is love, so try to show them more kindness than they showed you. This is how we can slowly make the world a more loving place.

Kindness begins with the understanding that we all struggle.

Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness, and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.

If you know someone who’s depressed, please resolve never to ask them why. Depression isn’t a straightforward response to a bad situation; depression just is, like the weather. Try to understand the blackness, lethargy, hopelessness, and loneliness they’re going through. Be there for them when they come through the other side. It’s hard to be a friend to someone who’s depressed, but it is one of the kindest, noblest, and best things you will ever do.

Never underestimate the power of good morning texts, apologies, and random compliments.

Don’t assume, ask. Be kind. Tell the truth. Don’t say anything you can’t stand behind fully. Have integrity. Tell people how you feel.

You never know what someone is going through. A few nice words can help a person a lot more than you think.

Be somebody who makes everybody feel like a somebody.

With one kind gesture you can change a life. One person at a time you can change the world. One day at a time we can change everything.

The people who are the hardest to love are the ones who need it the most.

The more you extend kindness to yourself, the more it will become your automatic response to others.

Lighten up on yourself. No one is perfect. Gently accept your humanness.

Do one act of kindness each day of the year and change 365 lives.

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

Today, be the reason someone feels loved.

Today, give a stranger one of your smiles. It might be the only sunshine he sees all day.

Start every day with a smile; it makes your whole day better. And chances are, it will brighten up someone else’s as well.

Being there for someone is what matters most. Just a smile or even a hug can turn someone’s day around.

Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of rewards, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.
