Why Do We Need More Kindness in the World in 2022 and beyond

I’m sure for some of you, and this seems obvious. After two years of a lockdown, it seems everybody’s temper is brittle. I have watched this myself. For example, drivers trying to get ahead one second faster has resulted in my almost being hit five times in a marked crosswalk over the last year.

With the world’s state of affairs today, we need more kindness now more than ever before. The world is (or at least seems) full of anger, hatred, and violence. There is too much fighting, judgment, anger, fear, and not enough loving and compassion for ourselves and our fellow man. We need more compassion and understanding, and it needs to come from all of us.

Kindness has a lot of benefits and not just for the person on the receiving end. Did you know that being kind can actually improve your health and well-being?
