~Maya Angelou ~ So true. Being kind to each other is so important for a fulfilling life. Making people FEEL they did something wrong or not to your liking is a very selfish act. When greeting people you should never make them feel they have to defend themselves.
Our words have such an effect on each other. Just saying one nice thing to someone can completely alter their views on the day and world, and could even save a life. Try saying something nice anytime it comes into your mind. Make kindness a habitual lifestyle, not a chore!
And I find that the real ones, are more your family than actual people outside your family. Yes, you will have a few people that aren't in your family that are important. But at the end of the day, blood sticks closer than anything to you!
