Compassion is a pause button that reminds us of a fundamental truth: we’re all stumbling and nobody has it figured out.
The best part about compassion is that it’s a learned trait—unlike your height or eye color—and the more we practice accepting others the sooner the easier it becomes to accept ourselves.
When this is at the forefront of our minds, we give people a chance to show up and be seen. When in doubt, the answer is compassion.
