Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Living Kindness Is What Changed Me

--by DANCE, posted Dec 15, 2016
For the first time in 2 years, I've managed to be kind to my ex.

After the horrendous things he's done and the crimes he committed I kept finding it very hard not to somehow insult him when I communicated with him (always by email or through lawyers).

I've been trying for a while now to meditate and wish him well in spite of it all. I only now managed and started with a very simple phrase 'I hope you are well'. This may sound silly or even mean but I could not possibly do anything of the sort at all. I'm pleased that I did it. Thinking, reading, meditating and living kindness has helped me.
