    The Reasons Why.

    When I was battling the toughest year of my life (thus far) people were there for me. I couldn't have made it alone. I was dying. Little by little, my world was ending. The despair, the agony of being so lost ate at me. It was destroying my spirit. It had shattered my hopes, my...

    Right At The Heart

    To me this is something that the world is desperate for. It's too easy to isolate ourselves, to make our world just about ourself, but when we do that, well, at least in my experience, the world becomes the most miserable place. What good is life without purpose? Feel free to...

    It's Part of Me

    I think I do have some compassion within me. I know for a fact that I am passionate, but I'm sure I have at least a little compassion too. :-) I value it in others, so much! A compassionate person is someone I'd like to hang around, all the time! Heehee! I think they...

    Giving Ourselves Compassion

    A while back a friend suggested I might consider being more compassionate with myself. Hmmmm ok, never really thought about that before but it rang true. After some research and reading I found something that resonated with me....it's not mine but I think I sort of incorporated...

    A Way Not Only To Help, But To Live

    Compassion acknowledges the deepest meaning we all have. To be kind to others reminds us that we were once newborn, helpless, and in need.

    For a long time I wondered

    why I constantly attracted the wrong men who treated me poorly. I now see that it was I who didn't believe I was good enough and didn't believe anyone would ever love me. I felt as though I had nothing to offer. At times I still feel this way. I somehow thought all men were...

    compassion so much as it is conformity, but to pity those who others despise or hate is true compassion.

    I Will Always, Always Offer a Shoulder to Cry On

    An Admirable Trait

    I guess I have always been compassionate. I somehow knew what others felt, and I just responded to it. There are basic needs that all of us have, in order to survive. For me, being compassionate is just another basic need that I have. When...

    This is how what someone else said about compassion, and I like it: "Compassion could be thought of as seeing the boundary between you and other things dissolved--that you are all integral to the universe and so, linked."

    Most people that have been through things
