Kindness doesn’t mean losing your self-respect for others, but selfish people hypnotize others like this for their selfishness.
Kindness is simply not hurting anybody nor expecting any loss of them.
Kindness is an intention, not something that fools pretend to show.

You can be kind to anyone and there is no cost to it.
