Treating people with kindness leads them to do same

Life lessons

The places I’ve been and the people I’ve met, I have always noticed the same human trait. It is the fact that if somebody has a choice between being kind and helping somebody or being mean and doing something harmful to somebody, if they are happy with themselves and try to feel OK — even when people have done bad things to them or people they care about — they will be kind and helpful.

It is easier to get along better in life if other people are feeling good about themselves even with all the hard things in life that happen to people.

When people do harmful things to Innocent people they have a lot of problems they need to work on.
