There are many reasons we withhold our kindness — too busy, running late, “not my business,” etc. But when it comes to being a good person, sometimes the answer is as simple as deciding to say yes the next time someone needs help.
These Twitter users are sharing proof that a little kindness goes a long way.

one time I was crying on the train after a shitty guy broke my heart and a woman asked me what was wrong. we talked for the rest of my ride. I then found out that her stop was six stops ago and she had stayed on just to console me. just thought we all need a reminder of good ppl

My (American) family had just moved to London. My mom was in a grocery store with us kids & an older British woman noticed our accents & struck up a conversation. When we checked out, she was waiting outside with a loaf of her favorite bread to welcome us to the country. https://t.co/DbVs8SM35t

I was homeless. It was in a suburb of Chicago in the winter, well below freezing. I’d not eaten or really slept in days.
A Pakistani family who owned a Dunkin Donuts invited me in, fed me hot soup and donuts.
They very literally saved my life.

A manicurist pretended to do my nails for 5 mins after I ducked into her store to escape a man who was following me down 6th Ave. As he banged on the window, her coworker called the cops from where he couldn’t see.
After he left, I got a mani pedi and tipped all the cash I had. https://t.co/a8tXLQx23q

My hours were decreased at a former job. Money was incredibly tight. I went to put gas in my car ($11.56) and payed at the register inside. My card got declined and I panicked. A kind lady said “I have kids your age. I know it’s hard.” She paid for me and I cried a lot. https://t.co/5UKnVy7vFH
