URGENT NOTICE: I am running low on kindness stories. Have you witnessed something wonderful recently? Do you know of something kind somebody has done for you or somebody else? Have YOU done something lovely that you are yet to share? PLEASE SHARE IT. Your stories are vital in keeping this series running!
Welcome back to Human Kindness! If you haven’t already, please check out Human Kindness: Introduction for the background to this blog series! These stories are NOT all my own, they have been submitted to me for the purpose of this series and are a collection from some of the kindest people I know or who have contacted me to share their story.
I am ALWAYS on the lookout for kindness stories, so please do get in touch if you have one, there is a chance for you to submit yours at the end of this post (and I will always keep them anonymous). As always, if you’d like to receive these stories directly to your inbox every Monday morning, sign up to the mailing list at the end of this post.
“I have never really told anybody this, but I do think it’s quite kind and I like the fact that I can submit here to you and nobody knows my identity so I can’t be seen as bragging haha!
I am a student and at the time was working part-time in a supermarket, so would do all sorts of hours. I was coming home from work in the early hours one morning, when I saw a girl walking along the side of the road and my gut was telling me something was off. I asked her was she ok, and did she need any help, and she told me that she had no phone and didn’t know where she was.
When I asked where she was trying to go to, she told me that she was trying to get home, but the address she told me was absolutely not walking distance, even if it were daytime. We all know it isn’t safe for girls to be walking around alone, especially so late at night, and there was absolutely no chance I could live with myself allowing this girl to attempt to walk home.
I know there are scams about, but I couldn’t live with myself if I didn’t try to help this girl. I was skint, but when someone needs help, they need help. So I paid for an uber for her to get home and waited with her until it came to take her home. I never saw her again, but at least I could sleep that night knowing she hadn’t walked miles across the city alone in the early hours.”
Have you experienced an act of kindness recently? Maybe you have done something for somebody that you haven’t yet shared for fear of being judged to be “bragging” or you have been on the receiving end of a kindness that somebody has shown you. My inbox is ALWAYS open for your kindness stories so please submit them!
Stories will be treated with discretion and published anonymously at all times, and I will share as much or as little information as you wish. Message me using the form below and I’ll be sure to feature your story in an upcoming post.
