Hey dear readers,
I’m someone who has a kind heart, someone who wants to do everything for her friends and the ones she cares about. I want to listen to everyone, and I want to help them by giving advice. I want to hug everyone who’s hurt, or having a hard time. I just want to make sure that others feel like someone cares about them. Because people do care about you. It doesn’t matter who you are, there’s always someone who cares a lot about you. And in my case, it could even be me.
Lately, I talked to a good friend of mine. He has struggled with a lot of things recently. I tried to help him as goodly as I could, but of course it was hard. He had to make his decisions, I could only listen to him and be there for him. Then he sends me this:
”How is it so easy for you to be kind to people?”
So I tried to think of a right answer. Because I exactly knew why I do it, why I help everyone, why I care about everyone. It’s a short, but very clear answer. So I responded:
”Because people haven’t been kind to me all the time.”
What I mean by that is that many of you know that I’ve been bullied for a few years. It doesn’t affect me anymore, but when I was younger, being a child, it did. You’re wondering what you’ve done wrong. Actually nothing, because you know that they were just jealous of you.
I know that I’ve the most amazing friends I could ever wish for. I can talk with three of them, about everything. We’re there for each other, and it doesn’t matter when or how. I haven’t met them, I’ve met them online. But they mean a lot to me. But like a lot. More than words can ever describe. Of course I sometimes get the feeling that they only talk to me because they know that I’ll listen, and I don’t always get the chance to talk about my thoughts and struggles. But I’m happy when I made them happy.
”The prettiest smile hides the deepest secrets. The prettiest eyes have cried the most tears. And the kindest hearts have felt the most pain.”
It’s true. People who’ve been bullied, or in which way they were having problems, will eventually become so much stronger. The ones who are the kindest towards others, are most of the time usually the ones who’ve had a rough time. In my case, being bullied and a few years back, I didn’t find the friends that I have now. So those people will always try to help others, because they couldn’t get it, or no one cared. And they try to avoid that for others. Those people are the best friends you can ever wish for. So if you have them, please keep them close to you. I promise you, that they’ll mean more to you then you can ever imagine.
Are you kind to people in a way that no one has ever been to you before? As if it’s almost nature for you?
Lots of love, ‘Daphne’
