It is difficult to be kind when the individuals don’t appreciate what you’re doing. A perfect example is giving a child medicine which we know will help them even as they would love to bite our fingers instead (figuratively and I hate to say it sometimes literally). Yet with children we understand this responsibility but it becomes more difficult when it’s for an aging parent or even a friend. For example they may say they don’t want to see anyone during a difficult time and/or don’t want to go outside but we know that deep down inside this would make them feel a whole lot better. Difficult kindness can show your true heart even as it feels it’s being ripped apart.
