How to Kill the World with Kindness

“People are unrealistic, illogical, and self-centered. Love them anyway.”
― Mother Teresa

Mother Teresa has and always will be an individual that inspires me to stay kind despite some very cruel arrows bulldozed my way.

I’ve endured backstabbing friends, toxic family members that damaged my self-esteem, and some rude strangers flicking me off on the highway. I’ve also battled depression and anxiety my whole life as well as ‘faith drowning’ events like my dad’s cancer diagnosis.

Still, I’ve learned that no matter how shitty a person is or how horrid a situation can be, anger will result in zero solutions EVERY time. Instead, I’ve finally started to heal my wounds by committing to acts of kindness daily and spacing myself away from any toxicity that threatens my well-being and peace.

Remember this: We can’t fix people or heal situations all the time, but we CAN control how we react to them. This may be especially difficult when we experience heart-breaks in our lives that cause us to deplete our faith, but it’s important to do some introspection here. We can either chose to add to the toxicity of a sometimes cruel world or we can be an iota of light that makes even a stranger’s day better just by smiling and genuinely asking how their day’s going.

So, who or what inspires you to keep your compassion when things get rough? How can you handle toxic people without losing your mojo?

Kill em’ and your world with kindness I always say.  For more inspiration, read Mother Teresa quotes here.

  1. An excellent reflection! I often pull strength from a Scripture passage in Matthew Chapter 10 which says ” As you enter a house, wish it peace. If the house is worthy, let your peace come upon it; if not, let your peace return to you. Whoever will not receive you or listen to your words—go outside that house or town and shake the dust from your feet.” I do believe we are to extend our peace to everyone we meet – but it does not always mean it will be accepted or returned to us. However, instead of becoming bitter, or angry, or allowing this negative/toxic treatment to infect us, we are to return this ‘gift of peace’ to ourselves and walk-away from/remove the negativity/toxicity from our lives. Thereby, (I believe) we can continue to ‘walk in peace’ and share it with those around us who DO wish to receive ALL that we have to give. Hugs to you for the wonderful reminder of this great life lesson!!

    1. Hi Dawn! Your post was so inspirational and beautifully written! I completely agree with you and I loved the scripture passage you shared, it was heartwarming! I’m so happy to know you want to spread peace in our world today, because so many people want to do the opposite. Blessings and hugs!
