Kindness Matters. “Kindness is one of the greatest gifts you can bestow upon another. If someone is in need, lend them a helping hand. Do not wait for a thank you. True kindness lies within the act of giving without the expectation of something in return.” —Katherine Hepburn
One of the ways I distinguish my real friends from everyone else is by observing how well they listen. Anyone can say they're a good listener but I've found that many are just good speakers. They listen only to speak or give opinion- they didn't truly listen. Respect people! Just REALLY listen and after you've thought about what you've heard THEN speak.
