  • Compassion

    Compassion is defined as caring about the suffering and needs of others. If we want to live in a world of kindness and compassion, we must also walk the talk. This trait  must be created inside ourselves and be demonstrated by our outward acts. We are each challenged to examine our own behavior and thoughts. We need to control our response to external events, actions and opinions of others in order to build compassion for what  motivates their behavior. Compassion starts with being able to understand where the other person is coming from.
