‘Kindness is a sign of weakness’ is it so?


Kindness begets kindness

This positive trait

Springs from the inner recesses of our heart

A person o this characteristic

Leads a life more spiritualistic

And more near to Almighty God

Kindness generates a feeling of goodness

For the person who exhibits this noble sensitivity

Because goodwill creates empathy

By rendering a helping hand for the fellow being

Who needs the hand of support

In the way urgently needed.

Those who think take kindness

As the sign of weakness

Are the people who have negative traits

And are expert in picking holes on anything under the sun

Where one exists.

I’m sure this negative thought is due to jealousies

And borders on unkind action

On the kind person

Who is known for kindness and compassion

Is not a ‘weak’ but stronger in his/her conviction.

 ‘Kindness is a sign of weakness’ is it so?

Those who think ‘kindness’ to be construed as ‘weakness’ are themselves unkind, inconsiderate, non-compassionate and all the negative traits put together. Though these words are tough yet their leaning for such person who considers those who are having ‘kindness’ as weak deserve such comments.

Kindness or compassion springs from our heart and our heart is springboard of positive emotions such as kindness, compassion, empathy, sympathy including all the positive thoughts put together. Such persons feel pain while others are feeling so. Their heart bleed when they see somebody are bleeding or being looked down upon and being handed out wrong judgment or being treated shabbily by the powers that be.

I, therefore, am of the firm conviction that those who are possessing ‘kindness’ are well brought up in congenial atmosphere, possess positive attributes in their lives and above all are adaptive to change. And to cap it all; they are the creams of society who command respect from the society in which they are living.

There are persons amongst us who do unthinkable acts of throwing muck or invective or insinuating that act of ‘kindness’ is due to their  ‘weakness’ are themselves steeped in weakness as a part of that person’s individuality. This is really an appalling thought precept, and may be, it is generated due to jealousy and resentment towards a person having compassion as one of the fine-tuned qualities.
