If you want to see a bewildered face, give a compliment. I have found that so few kind things are said or shared, with complete sincerity and with no benefit whatsoever, that it confuses people.

It may sound silly, but I have seen it happen so many times. My mother always taught me that it costs nothing to compliment a person, but it can mean so much to someone.

There is no undercurrent of attraction or any other inferred relationship, merely telling someone how nice they look makes them stand taller and boosts the endorphins in a stressful day.

There must be something positive in each person (I keep hoping, and over-trying to find it to be sure in some cases)and with an empathetic eye and a confident spirit, we can share the kindness we would want for ourselves.

I operate from a standpoint that people are basically good and, believing that, I try to be careful with someone else’s feelings and vulnerabilities.

Yet, lately, I have been handed my trust back like a crumpled up paper bag.  I keep trying to straighten it, and myself, up right again, but it just isn’t the same.  Recently, it has happened more than once.  In fact, despite explaining openly about how painful I found it when another broke it, it happened again.

Being real has never meant that I climbed on someone else’s back, money, knowledge, experience or any other something that belonged to them, to get myself ahead.  Taking advantage of people is the opposite of how I was raised.

To me, there is no time clock; a human being who is compassionate, honest, trustworthy and genuine behaves that way 24 hours a day.   I don’t have different rules for different places and different sides of my mouth.

First, be a human being.

What is so sad is discovering just how rare that has become for many others.  I am disappointed for myself (ok, disgusted really) and heartbroken that cynicism and opportunism is celebrated more than loyalty and integrity.  Inspirational words, followed up with honest and legitimate behavior, is what will restore my faith again, one person at a time.
