When we act compassionately, we are in fact achieving one of life’s greatest accomplishments.

Compassion is when we’re able to empathize with others, see beyond ourselves, and uplift the wellbeing of others. Getting beyond ourselves to help others in need—whether it be a child, friend, an elderly person, the underprivileged, poor, or those in a soup line; is the stuff of saints we should all strive to emulate.

So, cultivate more compassion in your life through your genuine care of others. Demonstrate your new habits through donating money and time, helping the elderly, giving more than you take, and mostly through your heartfelt actions.
