As an adult, we have to continually remind ourselves of this life lesson....whenever we dismiss a kind gesture from someone whom we are not excited about having as a friend or a date, or from someone who we feel can't benefit us in some way. Whether it's not returning a smile or a phone call, not responding to their invitation, not expressing thanks for a gift or favor, we are acting like a self-centered first grader.
The next time someone shows you kindness, show your appreciation and gratefulness. It not only will help them feel good about themselves, but you will feel better about yourself, as well.
