A simple quote I read this morning that resonated with me:
"Practice genuine kindness. – The best choice you can make is to be genuinely respectful and authentically kind. Though your kindness will not always be returned, it will certainly be noticed. And even when it’s not fully appreciated by others, your kindness will always inject more positive value into your own life. What you give comes back to you in ways that are impossible to predict. So give your kindness as often as you can, and enjoy the more positive world you are helping to create." - Marc and Angel Hack Life
Because really, it should be the only way.
