Tonight I’m contemplating quality of kindness. I think I’m kind, but have the desire to look deeper. To understand better I need to start with the definition and I love the synonyms. I can look at the synonyms and see which of those come easily to me and which ones I need to develope. It’s a challenge to me on the path towards a better self. A challenge to keep improving.
In order to see my blind spots I should look at these antonyms as well:
Animosity, hatred, ill will, hostility, indecency, indifference, intolerance, meanness, mercilessness, selfishness, thoughtlessness, barbarousness, cruelty, harshness
Am I harboring any of these antonyms? Toward anyone or myself? What synonym can I practice or refine to improve?
