Kindness is critical when seeking personal growth
On the road to personal growth, interactions with others can play a large role in determining the success or failure of the pursuit. It does no good for an individual to strive to eliminate negativity from their life if they treat other people with disrespect and forget about their role as an Earth Citizen.
Rabbi Harold Kushner has written extensively about these ideas, according to the Gloucester Times. He says that forgiving others and always being kind are paramount when it comes to personal growth and should not be forgotten.
These words echo Ilchi Lee’s thoughts on personal growth. While it is important for individuals to work to improve themselves, they must never forget that they are part of a larger whole and that any self-improvement should be sought while keeping the good of the wider community in mind.
This may result not only in better outcomes for the individual, but also stronger communities and a more peaceful world. For these reasons, it is important when seeking personal growth to treat others kindly and with respect.
