    To the point of where I currently cry at the

    news because of the Migrant Crisis. I hate how these people that are living through absolute hell are being treated like a problem that can just be ignored.

    Children

    My Nature

    It has always been in my nature to comfort those who are hurt. I think that I get my compassion from my grandparents. Of course being an empath has a lot to do with it too.  But sometimes being so compassionate can be painful. Its hard when you are unable to help...

    Thinking of Others

    at least i'd like to think so.  my friends say it is my greatest quality.  i think having compassion means sometimes thinking of others more than anything else, including yourself, and that's what i tend to do a lot.  it feels good when you know that people are...

    We Need To Love Again

    Compassion is a very idealised state in my mind

    to be capable of. If we were all more compassionate the world would be a much better place for a great number of people. Life has enough for many but there are people who have a certain outlook on life, who claim to be compassionate but who by their thoughts, words and deeds are...
