“One of the secrets of inner peace is the practice of compassion.” Dalai Lama
Sometimes the best action you can take to help relieve emotional suffering of another person is by being there with them with all your attention on the person and their problems, you don’t have to say anything you just have to be there for them.
By this 11th post for BlogChatter A2Z Challenge, I want to stress on practicing compassion and I insist 🙂 #26days26ways
What is Compassion? A consideration or concern for others emotions and sufferings. To be kind and caring.
Practice Compassion when you see a girl who is over-weight, crossing her marriageable age, living in depression, facing rejections, and betrayal, she has got already so much to deal with and people around her makes it worse by making her realize her weaknesses, making her feel miserable by asking her those forbidden questions, giving her unsolicited pieces of advice.
We human beings always need a push most of the times, not every person is self-motivated or determined, but hardly anyone cares to become a strength and bring the beauty out of the worst situations.
Practice Compassion, when you find a young boy who needs emotional support as he is weak from the inside, but he is the stronger sex and if he admits or confesses to the world that he is weak, he is unable to face the world and is afraid of taking decisions. People will make fun of him, he will be made an object of mockery, and he might end up in depression.
There are certain human limitations, not everyone is the same, we see the world based on our beliefs and try to impose others to see it that way but the fact is we cannot understand the pain or suffering of others unless we get to the core of it.
Some time ago, I read somewhere that depression and anxiety are linked to a state of self-focus, a preoccupation with “Me, Myself, and I.” When you do something for someone else, however, that state of self-focus shifts to a state of other-focus.
If you recall a time you were feeling blue and suddenly a close friend or relative calls you for urgent help with a problem, you may remember that as your attention shifts to helping them, your mood lifts rather than feeling blue, you feel energized to help; before you know it, you may even have felt better and gained some perspective of your own situation as well.
For true compassion, we will have to expand our understanding so we don’t mistakenly create more pain from suffering.
Much love and gratitude
