Compassion is such an underestimated word. We fail to come to grasps with the gravitational effects a simple word we say, or emotion we emit, can have on someone. We have no shame in calling someone fat, stupid, ugly, or a loser, while we think twice – at least – before we utter a complement.
We are so haste to give our “honest opinion” about a person, that we forget that everyone around us is fighting a tough battle of their own. It’s not until we face the same predicament that we realize how wrong our actions were.
We make and break promises to ourselves not to be rude to people around us anymore. A good way to commit to these promises is by urging ourselves to be nice to balance things out: for every time you hurt someone’s feelings, apologize, and, then, do something nice to someone else.
