Have you ever moved to a new city or even just changed neighborhoods? If you take the time to try to remember what that feeling was like, how uncomfortable it made you feel in your own skin. Or if you didn’t know what was expected of you or how to behave in a new situation. It can help immensely to dig deep and find a common thread with people you might not feel compassion for at first.
We Are More Alike Than Different
Emotionally, we as humans all fear things, all hope for things, all love and hate things. We are all trying desperately to get through life and survive what is coming day to day. It is so easy to get caught up in our own mess that we don’t think about how much we impact other people. Road rage is a common trope now in society. People forget to say please and thank you. Who has time to learn about their fellow human beings when our own lives are going at the pace of an Indy 500 race?
Compassion Leads to Kindness
Kindness and compassion can seem hard to come by. Sometimes it feels like you have no energy to live your own life let alone to give any energy to anyone else. But the funny thing about kindness is that it pays you back in compounding interest. When you are kind to someone else, even small kindnesses can feed your own soul in ways you don’t realize. When you look at your fellow human being with compassion, it makes you worry less about your own problems, even if only for a split second.
If you try to remember that the person next to you is just like you emotionally, underneath everything on the outside that might make you think you are completely different, it will make being kind to them much easier. Kindness always pays great dividends.
