Unity through compassion – While our individual sorrow may be subjective, the emotion itself is something that each and every one of us share. The understanding of the pain and the struggle that accompany sorrow is something that should pull us together. Compassion doesn’t look at our petty differences. It doesn’t look at skin color. It doesn’t look at gender. It doesn’t see philosophy, theology, or politics. Compassion takes a direct route to the things that we have in common, the things that connect us, and completely bypass anything and everything that might separate us. Compassion not only unifies, but, if you let it, fortifies!
“Our human compassion binds us the one to the other – not in pity or patronizingly, but as human beings who have learnt how to turn our common suffering into hope for the future.”- Nelson Mandela
Developing your sympathy, empathy, and compassion for others will completely change your perspective on life and how you interact with those around you. Start to look for ways that you can practice compassion as Mandela said. Not from pity, but from a genuine desire to better understand what others may be going through.
