“Let me tell you a story,” he said. “My mother is in the hospital with cancer. I visit her every day and bring her flowers. I went this morning, and she got mad at me for spending my money on more flowers.
She demanded that I do something else with that money. So, here, please accept this. It is my mother’s flowers.” – Leslie Wagner, “Peel, Arkansas.”
So, the lesson or take here is that there are too many paths to be unkind or to remain distant to others, unaware to better ways to be gentle and kind to others; however, the path less taken or less used is the path a conscious individual must take. So, whenever there is a chance for kindness and gentleness, take it.
Do not hesitate and wonder if it is popular or unpopular to demonstrate kindness and gentleness in a particular moment; for in this courage to immediate action lies your moral values as a human being. You see, your moral values are born from within you and they are manifested not in your thinking, but in your behaving, daily, in the normal and simple things in life.
So, in order to change your community, your society, your nation, your world, you must use the goodness in you, in those simple moments in life, for example, when you are walking down the street and see a person in need. Because it is about developing your character, so you shine in value and integrity as a person, and so you become an example to follow.
And so you find truth, and value, and meaning, and strength inside you, through your actions, in the creation of yourself as a better human being; to thus bring more love into your life, more joyful states of mind, more positivity, and more opportunities in every aspect.
