    Giving Ourselves Compassion

    I Will Always, Always Offer a Shoulder to Cry On

    I think compassion is a trait that is overlooked in society today. If more of us realized that we are all human, all in need of love and acceptance as a general rule of humanity, I think this world would be a much better place. So for anyone out there - if you are...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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."
