Compassion For Self And Others

--by balou, posted Nov 30, 2021
I had a long conversation yesterday with an acquaintance who is currently having a difficult time and whom I tried to support amongst others by pointing out her achievements so far, her (inner and outer) beauty, reminding her of situations where she had made a difference in so many others.

This morning I received a "Thank you" message which mentioned - "how come you are always so positive about everything and work on lifting others up?" ๐Ÿ˜ณ

The answer is easy: I am not! But helping others to see the good in themselves makes me focus on the positive interactions, the beauty of life and thereby helps me out of my own darker hours as well. (At least as long as the other person is not inherently negative ๐Ÿ˜‰)

Accepting ourselves for what we are, helps us to be more compassionate with ourselves and with others, that we interact with.
