3 Ways to Show Kindness Without Being Judged
Most of us are taught to be kind and helpful, but sometimes we’re so focused on helping others that we don’t realize that our efforts might not be welcome. That can lead to hurt feelings and misunderstandings, which is why it’s important to show kindness in the right way for the situation at hand.
There are many inspirational quotes by Master Oogway that inspire us to be kind and responsible for the well-being of others.I was talking with a friend of mine who was upset because someone had said something mean to her. She felt hurt and angry, and she didn’t know how to get over it.
Here are a few tips for showing kindness without being judged:
I think we can agree that being kind is a good thing. But you might be thinking: “What if I’m trying to be kind, but then someone judges me for it? Will they think I’m a pushover?”
It’s natural to feel concerned about judgment when you’re trying to be kind, especially because it’s so easy for others to judge us. People are quick to take offense or assume there’s an ulterior motive behind our actions. But remember this, judgment isn’t something we can control or avoid completely, but here are some ways we can overcome it:
Practice kindness in small ways first: If your goal is to show up in the world as a more compassionate and understanding person than before, start by doing things like smiling at strangers and offering them help when appropriate (instead of passing judgment).
Your intention should always be clear: You want people around you to feel safe and happy with themselves; not just because you’re feeling nice but because they value showing kindness as well.”
Ask before offering help
Kindness is a gentle art. It’s easy to be kind in theory, but when you see someone in need of help and they look like they could use it, it can be difficult to know how best to proceed.
One way to practice this tip is by taking into account the situation at hand, if someone looks like their day was rough and you spot them alone at their desk staring into space with a messy hair bun, then offer your assistance. If however, an acquaintance is having what seems from afar like a particularly nice lunch with their friends or colleagues and doesn’t look like he or she needs help with anything, then perhaps don’t make yourself known.
Express your appreciation
How do you express your appreciation to others? Do you say it in person, with a smile, and when there’s no expectation of anything in return? If not, why not?
When someone does something nice for you, whether it is buying your favorite pizza or helping you move boxes, it is easy to let them know how much the gesture means to you.
Some people might even judge those who show appreciation as being weak or unable to stand up for themselves. This can put people in an uncomfortable situation where they don’t want their actions judged or questioned by others.
However, expressing kindness still has value because showing gratitude can make others feel good about themselves. It also helps strengthen relationships between friends and family members who may have been drifting apart due to work schedules or other commitments that keep them apart for long periods throughout each day/weekend/month etc…
pay attention to other people’s needs
Never assume you know what someone needs, even if they seem like they’re struggling. We often think we know what’s going on in other people’s lives, but the truth is that we don’t have all the information.
In these moments, I usually decline because it’s not an appropriate time for them to ask favors from me or anyone else – even if we were able to help each other out of our binders (which would be great.), asking for assistance at a time like this can make things more stressful for everyone involved.
Before you offer help or take action on behalf of someone else without asking them first, consider whether or not those actions would benefit them.
It may seem obvious that offering kind gestures will make others feel better about themselves and improve their day overall; however, there are some cases where being too helpful could hurt someone instead (for example: giving away something expensive).
The worst thing someone can do is say no when offered support, so don’t shy away from asking questions that might reveal more information about whether or not your gesture would be welcome before taking action (or bringing up concerns)
