Sincere gestures or acts to brighten someones day. A random text of a joke. A phone call to see how someones been if its been too long. An invite out to get away, even if its only for an hour. A surprise cup of coffee if the day is going to be difficult, and its only just begun. Change-ups from the routine of whats been done or expected. A hug. These little things that can so effortlessly be done can make all the difference in someones outlook for the rest of their day/week/life.
It shows a person is being thought about and that they’re cared for and appreciated.
However, its the little things that people keep inside that build up and just turn into spite and resentment. Even though the intention of being passive towards certain selfish gestures is to avoid conflict, it often becomes bottled negativity thats bound to explode.
Everyone is struggling with something in their life. But that doesn’t give anyone the right to take advantage of peoples’ kindness and genuine want and willingness to help.
Its a balance of give and take.
Don’t be arrogant. Be humble. Because otherwise fuck you.
