Stories of Kindness from Around the World

A Lesson in What Wasn't Said

--by mnc_91, posted May 29, 2016
Reflecting on the day that was, I realized that I might have been more compassionate to someone who treated me 'quite unkindly' if I have listened carefully to his body language. It was only this afternoon when I saw him not physically well that I understood that he was not his usual self that's why he acted unkindly earlier. My big lesson for the day is to listen to what others are not saying.
