Kindness is often expressed through generosity and care.

Yet, kindness can also be fierce

when protecting oneself or someone else.

Kindness enables people

to find joy and meaning in the act of helping others.


This character strength is directly linked to

and expressed through the life skill of Empathy.


Empathy enables us to SHARE the feelings of another person.


And it helps us to better UNDERSTAND their experiences.

Empathy is the CAPACITY to imagine

“walking a mile” in someone else’s shoes.


"Empathy begins with understanding life

from another person's perspective."


Sterling K. Brown
