“Never look down on someone, unless you’re helping them up.”
Let those words settle in for a minute.
They really are profound.
When was the last time you showed empathy or compassion for another person?
How can you show compassion on a daily basis?
Was it fulfilling for you, personally, to do something for someone else?
That’s one of the great things about showing empathy and compassion.
You not only are helping someone else, but you also get something small in return.
Compassion is the result of expressing empathy for others’ suffering.
It is one of the most quintessential components to living a peaceful and harmonious life.
It brings immediate and long-term happiness, when practiced.
When there is a desire to develop compassion in your life, the key is to make it a daily practice.
Start each day with meditation.
When interacting with people, practice compassion.
When preparing for sleep, reflect on compassion.
By incorporating this practice into our daily lives, it becomes a part of us.
Compassion also carries positive physical benefits.
Practicing compassion has shown to increase DHEA by 100%.
DHEA is an anti-aging hormone.
Practicing also reduces cortisol by 23%, which is the stress hormone.
Compassion feeds spiritual and emotional being as well.
It allows us to be happier and to share our happiness with those around us.
Most of us desire peace and happiness and to share with others.
So it is logical to practice compassion to achieve that which we can have as quickly as right now.
Keep showing up and sharing your message.
Your people NEED YOU and are trying to find you.
Share that happiness, compassion, and empathy with those around you.
You may not realize the impact it might have on them.
It might be exactly what they needed in that moment or on that day.
We either lift people up, or we take them down.
There are two kinds of people on earth.
People who lift and people who lean.
Constantly be intentional to lift!
