We live our lives just getting things done, running errands and doing things we have to do. We don't stop to ask people how they are doing unless well someone calls us then we ask "how are you doing" but do you all really mean it when you ask? Do you care?
Thing is, you don't know what people are going through. Sometimes asking someone how they are doing will make them feel like someone cares when maybe all they have in their life is themselves. Maybe they're torn up about a recent breakup, or maybe something more tragic happened. You never know what is going on in someone else's life.
All we can do is be kind to everyone we meet. Maybe they'll be mean and bitter to us but so what, at least we were nice and then maybe, just maybe they'll be nice to the next person they see. After all, smiling and being nice can be contagious!
So today, and every day to come,
"Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting their battle too."
