This 1 Compliment Has Served Me for 22 Years

The power of kind words

We interacted for 5 seconds. In fact, I don’t think he even gave me a chance to speak. He said his piece, and walked away. I never saw him again.

He didn’t have to approach me. He didn’t have to say what he said. He could have left this as his inside voice.




We spread the ripple of kindness. This is the place for stories on kindness. Let kindness be your superpower.
