Only Kindness Matters

 

Life is hard, right? We all have our problems, we all have things to deal with, we are all fighting a battle and the least we can do for each other is being kind.

However, kindness is the last thing that crosses our mind, because it’s easier to put down, to find fault, to denigrate and to make the other person feel unworthy.

One of the most devastating experiences for the human soul is being bullied. It’s traumatic when you are young and in school, but it’s probably worse when you are a adult and you’re being harassed at your workplace by your boss.

Sometimes bosses go around acting ┬álike minor gods, with that horrible attitude of “superiority”and treating others as their personal slaves.

Lately I’ve been hearing all sorts of stories of people, young and old, being emotionally abused at their workplace, and it gets me so upset. I also feel powerless and sad, very very sad.

Bullying is on the top of the list of “things I hate”, but how can we fight it? What can one person do to un-right the wrongs, to give a voice to those who are being bullied and restore dignity at the workplace?

I guess we can create awareness and we can definitely start a kindness revolution! It starts at home, remember?
