Why is it so hard to be kind? Introduction


People will bypass opportunities for Kindness for one of three main reasons:

Incompetence

Insecurity or

Inconvenience."

-Houston Kraft, author of Deep Kindness


At The Narrative Initiative in our search for ways to overcome barriers to kindness we know it's about "The Ask" and being explicitly mindful of the importance of allowing someone to opt in to receive our kindness...or opt out and decline it.


But what are the barriers to asking? I found Houston Kraft's take on these barriers insightful and complementary to our Narrative Kindness work. We will take a look at these over the next week.


Stay tuned!

Keep calm and be kind

Peace
