Hate spews hate. That’s why I choose to be kind to people whenever possible. I don’t need to have everyone like me but I also don’t go out of my way to make people hate me. Usually.
I find that many people’s beliefs prevent them from truly sharing love and kindness. It’s a big reason that I’m an atheist. I want to live in a world where everyone is be able to express their feelings or opinions without reprisal. I may not believe in a god but I do believe in the good inside of people. Being accepting of how different we all are is a great attribute that many people lack. Often hiding behind religion or even racism to explain their behavior.
I try and accept people as decent humans. Showing some random kindness is my way of sharing my beliefs: Be kind to others.It’s that easy. Or as Wil Wheaton says: Don’t be a dick.
