There was a time when if a person was mad at their spouse they would go to their parents house to get away from the heat of the moment and possibly cool down. When they would get to the house, initially, the parents would be cool because they didn't know that the only reason their child was there was to escape their raging spouse at home. When that parent found out that they were fighting and their child wanted to stay at their parents home for the night, the next thing you would hear is "oh no baby you gotta home to your wife/husband! You married them, you better go home and work it out!"
We need those type of parents and love ones back in our society and we also need to become those type of parents and loved ones. What that taught us was to face our own issues and take responsibility for our own actions and decisions. Now, if the reason the spouse left home was for domestic violence reasons, then that is a different story-it's time to call the one number that rings everyone's phone and go whip some ass! But...if your friend, child, loved one or whomever comes crying to you all the time about how horrible their relationship is, send them back home with love, "Go fix it!" thus supporting longevity in their relationship. Also, there is no need to create issues in your home because someone doesn't want to face their responsibilities. Nowadays, people want to encourage the negativity. Being "petty" has become so common that we have forgotten the true essence of showing love and respect to others and their own business. Chyyyy- Mind yo own business and send them folk home!!! #ShowLove
Kindness is rare these days. Most people will not even say thank you for opening the door for them or even throw their hand up as a "thank you" sign when you allow them over in your lane on a busy interstate. These are acts of kindness. I always found it quite weird for people to show much appreciation when it comes to financial items versus the smaller acts of kindness, don't you? The fact that most people can vocally appreciate things that they are mostly in need of but pass by the things that people do not have to do is always mind-boggling.
However, if your heart speaks to you and tells you to do something kind for someone, do it. Putting yourself in a position to doing something that is kind for an act of kindness in return is setting yourself up. People should appreciate the kindness that we put forward, but if they chose not to, just keep being you. You can either make the decision to not be kind or be kind. The choice is yours.
For those who take people's kindness for granted, please take a moment to view your own actions and remember that people are giving you a piece of themselves that they don't have to.
