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).

We all know by now I’m a sucker for romance, and this week’s story really was a delight to hear about. It’s the small things in a relationship that really mean the most. These small but meaningful acts of kindness are a true sign of love, care, and respect. I am HERE for them ALL!!!
“My partner does super kind things for me when I’m feeling down.
I am a PGCE student and it is A LOT of work. And very stressful.
Last week, my partner came back from the park with tulips that he’d picked for me because he wanted to brighten up my desk for me whilst I worked.
Also, because I have been so close to dropping out of my PGCE, he bought me a pin badge that said “I’m a teacher, what’s your superpower?” but he didn’t tell me. He just put it on my lanyard for me to find because he knew it would spur me on.
These actions may only be small, but they mean so much to me, and really keep me going when times are hard.”
