Struggling but kind.

I’m struggling a bit so naturally I’ve been over thinking. Chicken or egg? Am I struggling because I’m overthinking or overthinking because I am struggling? Are they juxtaposed? Did I just shoehorn in juxtaposed to appear smarter than I am? I digress.

You dunno who’s going through what, man.

Be as kind as you can be. A wee indiscriminate act of kindness, something you might forget you did in ten minutes time, a few quid to a homeless person, a pay it forward, lend 50p to that punter who’s short on bus fare and the driver is being intransigent, even a text to someone you’ve not spoken to in a while, donate, volunteer.

If you were to pay too much attention to the news you’d be forgiven for thinking that there is no kindness, or that kindness is a negative thing, a weakness or evidence of naivetĂ©. We need more kindness and less callous indifference. When did helping those in need become a bad thing?

That act of kindness will do you as much good as the person you’re helping.


Don’t be a dick.
