When we have no happiness within, we have no happiness to give others
- Ajahn brahm
This post was inspired by a conversation I had with a friend of mine. We were talking about why people have an opinion on everything and then it came down to us discovering a simple truth of why people can be so unkind and mean - you know who they are. Could be the people that you hang out with. Could be your colleagues, your family.
You wonder why they do the things they do, why they say what they say.
The truth is they are not nice because they are not happy.
And the reality is we can't make them change unless they are willing and ready to change. But we can change the words we say to ourselves because our words make our world. Kindness starts with You.
