Some nice advice from Vicki A. Davis. "Everyone wants to be appreciated and encouraged. You can do it too." Now, note, that while she suggests "the habit of being kind and thoughtful can do a lot to improve your workplace, school, or home" it's important that being kind not be about what you get back. Not even the feeling of satisfaction you get from being kind (because then you just start doing it for 'kindness points' and lose track of the quality of the kindness). Also note that everybody can be kind in their own way - it isn't about everyone giving nice little presents to everyone. Find your own way to be kind, and practice it as a form of inner perfection.
