Compassion is a feeling of pity, sympathy, and understanding for someone who is suffering. Compassion is helping to relieve another person’s suffering through acts of kindness, caring, and support. It includes empathy for the other person as well.
Compassion is being more concerned with the wellbeing of others. It is a skill which many people have forgotten in this hustle-bustle of Modern life.
Self-compassion is a vital component of compassion that is often overlooked. Self-Compassion is being proactive in helping relieve your own sufferings. It’s like trying to avoid people and situations that could be the cause of your agony and suffering. Once you have developed self-compassion it becomes quite easier for you to become Compassionate with others.
Compassion is the willingness to give or offer which our holy scriptures also strongly emphasize on. Every living being should be viewed as a part of God and when you have a strong willingness to offer or sacrifice to God you will naturally develop a strong feeling of Compassion towards all your fellow beings. Being compassionate also helps you personally since to make a real difference in another human being’s life is a highly satisfying feeling. In fact, Compassion is the bond that binds all of Humanity close together.
Compassion is particularly important to those who are highly vulnerable. For people who are dependent on others for help and support, compassion is often the most important factor in allowing them to lead satisfying lives. Therefore it becomes imperative for us to treat them as equals and to ensure that they enjoy the same rights as other members of society. For those individuals, compassion provides respect while parallelly safeguarding their dignity.
Finally i want to end up with a short sentence:
We can create a meaningful difference in the world simply by performing one simple act of compassion.
Stay Safe, healthy and at Peace.
