Reasons to be kind


When autumn darkness falls, what we will remember are the small acts of kindness: a cake, a hug, an invitation to talk, and every single rose. These are all expressions of a nation coming together and caring about its people.” -Jens Stoltenberg

You might wonder what idea stands behind this title, I will try to explain my point of view and I hope it will bring you some thoughts too.

I’ve been on this planet only for 17 years, which actually isn’t that long. It is also said that my time here is timed, so sometimes I get this feeling of fear and worry, and often don’t know where it comes from. But I have learnt that having someone to share our
feelings, emotions and thoughts with, regardless of them being good or bad, is the best thing that could ever happen to ourselves. And not only that, it also makes us feel like we are a somebody too.

Sadly there are people, who don’t get a chance to experience this type of human interaction. It happens often because they have been rejected before or have been told that feelings just don’t matter at all. It gives enough time to close themselves for another people. Knowing this, I get angry and mad, but I also search for answers and solutions, because I want to make a change.


I am writing today, because just an hour ago, for the first time since long time people were kind to me, without any selfish intentions. To be honest, I still believe that I could almost reach the stars, and it made me realize that the tool I had been searching for a very long time is right there in me, in you and everyone else around us.

So here it goes. There isn’t any specific or astonishing reason to treat others with kindness and love, it’s just something that comes natural to us. Unfortunately we are so busy being afraid, that we forget the reason why we are even here in the first place. A small act of kindness could make someone’s day or maybe even save someone’s life and I know that. There is nothing else that keeps me going more than when my body and mind find peace by interacting with the waves from someone else’s heart.

Keep being You, let go off whatever is stopping you from opening yourself up to your nature. And who knows, maybe one day, together we will reach the stars.
