We have the potential to make June 1st especially enjoyable for everyone on National Say Something Nice Day.
The goal of this celebration is to raise awareness about bullying and the rising lack of courtesy and ordinary courtesy amongst people in a modern environment. Perhaps, saying something pleasant today will become a habit that will last for all future days.
Many of us were taught as children, “If you can’t say something kind, don’t say anything whatsoever.” One of several justifications our mum told us this is that once we hear those words, no matter how genuine we believe they are, we can’t take them back. We all know somebody whose genuine character is more compassionate than the majority.
Do they give gifts or do they stick to the adage? Maybe a little bit of both. However, there are a few other things we may learn from generally polite people. It entails more than just saying pleasant things to other people. They sincerely respond to others and prioritise the needs of others. It is not customary for them to pay a compliment. The receiver senses their honesty.
Consider the nicest person you’ve ever met. Take a page from their book and emulate one of their best attributes. Make a kind comment to or about somebody. Bring a grin to someone’s face simply because you enjoy seeing them smile. Seek no greater reward than realizing that you made someone’s life better by saying something pleasant.
