I wanted to share this to all of you. Even if we are dead tired of work, pissed of something, we need to show a new face to another person. If someone asked you nicely, don’t give them that dragon like force of reply. Hahaha. I mean seriously, they are out of whatever we were mad about.
I experienced this at work. It was totally crazy that day. I was so preoccupied with a lot of things that I turned out to be super impatient. And whoever goes inside my territory, I give them that wrinkled forehead look implying “what do you want??”. I can really feel that they feel fear. I didn’t mean it, I know. I am sorry. But, there are just really days like that. So as much as I could, I try to give them back the kindness they deserve. I think that little may it seem to me to do a favor or to be mindful with their needs, it means something to them. Something to the extent they will not forget your kindness to them or the thought that you gave attention to their concern.
Like for instance today, I wasn’t busy at all, however, I was fixing some of my stuff and must-to-do list before I go on vacation. I was like in a rush to do everything as early as possible. Then there were my patients, well this time, I reminded myself to be kind and to act benevolently. So when I faced them, I acknowledged their presence and started entertaining their needs. I know it’s not that easy, but I am trying. Really I am trying (believe me, alright?) and I hope I could make this a habit. \m/
