I am compassionate with others and myself.
“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.
I bring my compassionate nature to every relationship; I treat others with the care and respect that they deserve, just as I strive to do for myself. Understanding that no one is perfect, but rather each person faces their own struggles and mistakes - including me - has enabled me to be gentle towards myself whilst still striving toward personal growth. Overall, it's an understanding of showing oneself self-worth which provides a balanced approach in life.
We are all on a personal journey, and never truly know what battles the person we pass by is facing. I take ownership of understanding this reality today; to be gentle with myself as well extend greater compassion to those around me. Showing kindness towards others isn't just an act - it's recognizing that each individual has equal worth in our collective experience regardless how much or little they may have compared to me. Each day presents new challenges, so taking time for self-reflection can help identify where I'm being too hard on either myself or others and offer opportunities through which more sensitivity could reach us both equally better off!
A heart that is filled with compassion
Is capable of true devotion,
For within it lies a connection:
Our common human emotion.
We must reach out to one another,
Show kindness and understanding -
Compassion will help us discover A world more peaceful standing.
