A very good morning to one and all present here. Today, I will be giving a short speech on the topic of the importance of kindness.
Google defines the term ‘kindness’ to be “the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate.” To be kind thus involves being compassionate and benevolent, especially in the face of the suffering or misery of others.
Why is kindness important? Being kind to others is critical in this world filled with war and bloodshed. We should not let ourselves be driven by anger and violence and be kind instead, which would make the world as a whole a better place.
Kindness not only avoids unnecessary brutality so prevalent in the world but also promotes one’s own state of the mind. To be kind and not be marred by ugly, negative emotions. It is proven scientifically that being kind, in fact, reduces stress and depression and does not take a toll on one’s health unlike the latter.
