Changing the world, one kind & compassionate conversation at a time

Changing the world, one kind & compassionate conversation at a time

We recognise though there is a world out there, which can often be unkind.

At times the behaviour of others has not been kind, which has led to someone needing to speak to someone, not because they have a mental illness, but because emotionally they have been hurt. In a way, they find the pain hard to deal with, sometimes even hard to express, as loyalty to the person who has been unkind maybe prevents them, even sharing with friends or family what is happening.

People can feel the conditions they work in are unkind. People have shared that the complicated paperwork needed to access benefits or being referred and assessed by services can lack compassion. People feel more processed than appreciated as unique individuals.

Changing the conversation to include kindness and compassion need effort by everyone. Sometimes we do this, one conversation, one policy, one procedure at a time.

The kindness postcard you can download, edit and send to someone is one small way to reach out to someone today and say. I care. 

Whatever roles we have been the work or personal, if we all think, what can I do to help build a kinder world, then we will all be one step closer to that world we all want to see.

"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Wise sayings often fall on barren ground, but a kind word is never thrown away.''
