Kindness is not a currency

Kindness is not a currency

September 10, 2019

When you regularly interact with people who are rude, arrogant and imposing, what do you think?

We’ll tell you what we think.

Those of a large stature, covered in tattoos, flashy condescending executives or “harder than nails tradies” but act like dickheads? And this goes for men, just as much as it does for women.

Compensating.

Some might be impressed, Some avoid them, and a small percentage of the population openly mock this type.

Kindness is not a fucking currency.

10x hello’s, common courtesies and acknowledgement don’t work out at $10 a pop. After a day of being a normal, friendly human being, no one checks their bank account only to find it $100 down. Saying g’day and normal friendly interactions don’t cost actual money.

The image above might seem like a mockery, but it’s a visual representation of what people really see in daily interactions. Tough, aggressive and abrasive on the outside. Someone small, insecure and scared on the inside.

Kindness is not a currency and it is not a weakness. It is more impressive than a feigned act of toughness. The toughest people we know, also happen to be the nicest. Their egos are satisfied with their physical and mental ability, there’s no need to impress that on others.

Kindness impresses people more than anything. It especially impresses people with impressive backgrounds.

If you bumped into yourself on the street tomorrow, would you be impressed, disappointed or indifferent.

I hear people bang on all the time about “self-care” being important, and emphasise how critical it can be to your mental well being to splurge on fast food or blow money on a set of candles and a bath-bomb. Cool, so you feel better for that half an hour whilst you soak away and forget that your problems exist- but when you get out and dry off, guess what? That problem is still there...
