This week there is a thing about kindness. I think it's a mental health awareness week. I try really hard to be kind. I think about my friends feelings, I look after my brother, I try to include everyone, but sometimes it can be hard to be kind if I’m in a bad mood or one of my friends has been mean. Then you're more likely to use a grumpy voice. Sometimes you don’t try to be mean, but people might misunderstand the point. That can make me feel a bit guilty because it can mean I upset someone when I didn't want to.
There are things you can do to show kindness to more than one person, you might give to charity or leave kind messages for a stranger. I saw a kind message tied to a fence today on our walk. It said that rain always passes and sunny days come back. My mum said it was about giving people hope because of coronavirus. I think it's kind of true. After you have a bad day, you usually get a better one.
One way to show kindness is to just let people think what they want to think, just because you don’t have the same opinion doesn’t mean you can’t get on. I've seen friends be mean to each other because they have different opinions. I think might feel embarrassed or frustrated which makes them do mean things. I think they probably feel pretty bad about it though, so I think we should just let people think what they want to.
The challenge I've set this week is to do 3 kind things this week, for example help to clean your room or help hang up the washing.
Thanks for reading this weeks blog, I hope you can come back and read again another time.
Hey there I'm Miss Scribbler :) and this is where I will be updating weekly to talk to you about emotional difficulties. I'm ten years old, and am quite sensitive so I talk to my mum who runs this online shop. I think my strength is understanding how other people feel by their actions. I am planning on opening my own section of the business were I want to sell affirmations, I'll keep you updated with that on the blog. Now step into my blog....
