If there are those who are willing – let them. How many times in life has someone offered to do something kind for you and you’ve said no? Perhaps you felt that you would be taking advantage of them or that the task was too much to ask of another.
Two things occur when you deny a kind heart. First, you give that person pause and allow them to wonder if they should offer such kindness in the future. Second, you miss out on receiving kindness. Neither of these results in the spread of kindness through our culture and our future.
The next time a kind heart offers kindness to you; accept it and pay it forward.
