Wonder – Right or kind?

Wonder (2017) movie is a heartfelt story. You better watch it, I highly recommend it.

There is a quote in there which is repeated more than once.

 

When given a choice between being right and being kind. Choose kind.

 

This is so true, the first time I ever remember someone telling me this was my Mum, she is the kindest soul on the planet, a very biased opinion, I know. The second person to tell me this was my dear friend Amol.

 

When Mum said it, it never made sense to me but it got ingrained in me somehow. Later in my life, in late 20s, Amol ingrained it in me again but this time I was consciously being kind as opposed to being kind by default. The world is not fair and it will never be. During time of distress and when you feel helpless, to show grace under fear; the act of kindness is what will get you through.

So to repeat, when given a choice between being right and being kind. Always, chose kind. 😇
