Kindness is the quality or state of being kind. The word kind is an adjective for sympathetic, helpful, friendly, considerate, generous etc. In the presence of one of these qualities would you consider yourself kind? Does it mean your not if not helpful? How do you define kindness?

Kindness for me is something spontaneous that involves sharing something that I have with others who do not have it. This could be my time, (to help someone cross a busy road), my knowledge because I am lucky to be aware of something that someone else is not (I have a watch and they need to know the time), a positive thought when all that they can see around them is negativity (the farmers need the rain for their crops so it has to rain some days). Those are examples to try and describe how I feel about kindness. it is not something that can be measured but it is tangible to the eyes of others through the ordinary, everyday things that each one of us does.

Kindness is not reflected in that way. Kindness comes from the heart but not on the outside. We might appear kind on the outside, such as being helping or friendly, but deep inside of us, we are actually using kindness as an excuse to do something evil. WHile being too blunt while talking can be a form of kindness too because we speak what's in our mind. We don't hide and we tell them what we really feel. Kindness should be a kind of feeling that makes them realise things about themselves.
