What does it mean to be compassionate? Who would you call in your life a “compassionate person”? How do we practice compassion? Why should I be compassionate? Where in my life do I need compassion?
I hope to be delving into some of these questions a bit more over the next week to really unlock how I view compassion and try to implement it into my life a bit more. It is no easy task, but I welcome the challenge.
Compassion is a really beautiful thing, I think. It implies an understanding and acceptance of another human being, for whatever reason the moment calls for. Compassion makes us feel connected and can bring us out of the solitary nature of our existence oftentimes. There are other humans in this world, and they understand my troubles.
We are bonded by the experience of life, and when we see this in all people, we can exercise compassion.
It is something which is so dearly needed in the world. Because of that, I’m looking forward to exploring this with everyone. As always, I invite you to come along. To try and practice it more as well, and to understand Compassion for yourself and in your life.
As always, this is a place of respect and of acceptance of ideas, with the opportunity for constructive discussion. I encourage posting a comment, or even just doing self-reflection and journaling about these ideas.
So that we may all become better people.
