So, I’m at the bus stop and there’s this guy, who is autistic and he approaches about three different adults—and asks them all how they were doing…just about everyone smiled and waved. Anyway, he gets to a lady that is holding a child, and the lady clinches her child even tighter when the guy approaches—and he asks how the lady was doing and she grunts and rolls her eyes. The child looks up at her mom and says, “That’s not nice, mommy.” And apologizes to the guy. The little girl had to be about 5 years old or so.
We can learn a lot from kids…and how kind the little girl was. She didn’t NEED a reason to be nice, she just was. As adults, we often get so wrapped up in how bad things are going, or how stressed we are, and then we treat random people like crap. Just be nice.
