The necessary step to compassion

 
The necessary step to compassion
is the sincere desire
to put healing over pain
 
 But before all of this
the very first step
is to want to want to choose compassion

    Sometimes it’s difficult to allow ourselves to feel because we can’t deal with the pain, but to have compassion you must feel the good and bad in life.

    • Agreed. In my experience, compassion and pain are very closely linked – almost the flip side of the same coin. True compassion opens us up to the entire spectrum of emotions, of living, of life. Including forgiveness.
