What happened to Kindness?

I consider myself to be an overall happy person. I try to be thoughtful and grateful for my many blessing. Even when things are just not going right I try to remember, someone always has it worst that I do, so I best be thankful for the blessings in my life.

There is one thing I feel really strongly about, and that is human kindness. We are all different, all of us come from different people, different places, different economic standings, you name it and we all have a long list of differences. But we are all created by God, and created to be different and have different gifts. I truly believe in my heart most people have good intentions.

I work in the service industry and I don’t want to toot my own horn but I know I am pretty good in general with people. I can relate to most everyone on some level. And I try my hardest to be kind and professional at work and in life. One thing I just don’t understand is why certain people (there is no one in particular I am thinking about) just seem like no matter what I do or possibly my co-workers do they refused to be pleased or happy. No job is ever good enough, they just can’t be pleased. And it goes beyond pleased, I don’t ask for anyone to be pleased per say, but general kindness towards other human beings I do expect. I don’t think it’s appropriate to yell, cuss, or demand in any instance. It just goes beyond common courtesy, human kindness, and respect of other people.

And can we talk about reviews for a minute. I think reviews are great, I myself look at reviews when making choices about purchases all the time. I think they are so helpful, but what I don’t understand is hatful reviews. In our community we have a few Facebook groups just aimed at customer service and the people on these groups can be vicious. I have seen children be trashed talked and utter disgusting comments made towards other people. I don’t understand what drives people to such a level of anger, life is stressful I get it. And we all have bad days sometimes bad years. But is it ok to speak to or about other people that way. Isn’t that just going to make you feel worse? I certainly think it does.

What do you think about human kindness in general, as a majority is it still alive and well or is the majority struggling?
