Re­solve to Be Kinder This Year

The Sun News - - News - - Christo­pher Si­mon

Ev­ery new year in­evitably brings with it the de­sire to im­prove our lives. Health and fit­ness cen­ters and diet plans take ad­van­tage of this by of­fer­ing deals this time of year, and one can only won­der how many peo­ple make it to Fe­bru­ary with their diet or ex­er­cise plan in­tact. While it is al­ways good to turn over a new leaf and to im­prove our lives, I’d like to sug­gest that a bet­ter New Year’s res­o­lu­tion would be to re­solve to treat peo­ple with more love and kind­ness. This is not an easy thing to do. Fam­ily, friends and co-work­ers can all be dif­fi­cult, and it can be es­pe­cially hard to be kind to those who aren’t treat­ing us well, but treat­ing oth­ers kindly is of­ten the only thing that will turn an an­gry per­son around, and even if it doesn’t soften the other’s wrath, you will have main­tained your own com­po­sure by treat­ing them kindly and won’t have any­thing to re­gret later. Re­solve to be kinder and more civil this year. What the world needs is surely more love and kind­ness and this res­o­lu­tion, be­sides im­prov­ing your own life, has a good chance to spread kind­ness and love to those who re­ally need it.
