As children, hate, violence, apathy and greed were as foreign to us as having to pay bills just to survive. We played with other children on our street, helped one another when we tripped and fell from running so fast, and really had no idea about the horrors lurking outside our neighborhoods.
We simply did what came naturally to us, not knowing we would soon become influenced by people not so familiar with basic human compassion.
Here are 3 ways to be more compassionate to others (and yourself!)
- 1. Practice Loving Kindness Meditation
- 2. Live More Compassionately
- 3. Listen to Other People More Often
