- My hair is exactly like my mom's.
- I have inherited my height from my grandmother.
- My metabolism is slow like my father's.
- I'm kind because my parents are kind.
Hold up - back up and let's see that last sentence once again. What do parents have to do with kindness?
For the past 2 decades, researchers have been working on discovering #TheKindnessGene that determines how kind a person will be. Apart from the gene, there are environmental factors and a person's experiences that add to the level of a person's kindness.
The idea that kindness is in our genes, much like how our body is formulated, is quite a cool concept no? It is a reminder that all those stories we heard growing up of our parents , friends or family members donating their time, money or effort to a house help, NGO, or subordinates and us following in their footsteps is connected.
Here's what you have to do
Trace the origins of your kindness gene through stories you have heard about family members, friends, colleagues, etc. on being kind.
