Life is a series of problems and overcoming one; experiencing changes, and embracing these things to make it through. Indeed, life had so much to offer especially the people around us.

More than just the act of kindness, compassion is something innate to anyone — an emotion that transpires to catalyst change and connects people within.

For today's blog let us talk about compassion and why it's humanity's greatest asset.

What is compassion?

According to the Dictionary, compassion is a "sympathetic pity and concern for the sufferings or misfortunes of others." A feeling of doing something and utilizing it to emancipate themselves from the feeling that weighs them down.

More than just giving empathy, compassion makes us move by making ourselves feel them and eventually think of things to make them realize everything's gonna be alright.

Why it is important to us?

We are just humans. There are times we act careless or see life in a miserable state only one knows how cruel it was. In such times, having the right people around us will certainly help to make things alright.

I once read an article saying that compassion attests to humanity and serves as a focal point to show our innate goodness. From the books to teachings, may it be religious or philosophical, compassion says one thing — to involve ourselves.

To make a change, one should show compassion, an act that starts from within.

Humanity & compassion

Why are there some who extend themselves for those in need?

If you were that someone who has that big heart to help, seeing people in a different light no matter what situation you are in, and seeking to make them feel good then you are showing compassion.

In all aspects, compassion is the core of humanity, utilizing empathy, voluntarism, and reverence giving what you have to offer for the ones in need. Without compassion, this world will be a home full of selfishness — there will be no hints of equality nor equity among us, goodness will never prevail.

What does it say about us?

Compassion, in its greatest sense, makes us move. Beyond the feeling of making someone else in their shoe, compassion makes us see that life is better by giving them an opportunity to start and change what had been hampering them.

Compassion makes us more humane, relating and making this world a better place.

Conclusion

Compassion is humanity's greatest asset, an intangible part of us. It makes us feel and above all, to catalyst change.

"No man is an island." We need others to make us realize that there is someone who can and who is willing to listen. With compassion, it lets us show how humanity really was — expressing collective trust and love.

For me, compassion is something that no one can take from us. This attitude, rather than an emotion, makes us who we are; it completes humanity and it's the reason why we have been like this. It connects us, creating a remarkable memory about us and a moment for others.

Being compassionate to other people also gives us a sense of feeling good about ourselves. I have helped a lot of people and that made me know myself better by realizing things I didn't know I can do. But above else, being compassionate has a limit for me, know when to be compassionate and to be not. In this time, there are a lot of people who take advantage of people who have pure hearts of helping them. Yun lang, thank you for this article. Ang ganda! <3

Aww, thanks for the appreciation! I got your point about it, maybe too much kindness and showing much compassion can be used against us in someone else's schemes. Not everyone has pure heart nga naman but then, as what you said, giving and sharing compassion to the right people will make this world a better place.

Being compassionate to others is what we need amidst this pandemic. And it's good to know that there are still people who have this attitude. An example of this are the community pantries that are being organized. Big salute to those who came up this idea.

Compassion is one thing that still reminds us about what it is to be human, the world has become miserable and the little love and care people still shower on others is as a result of compassion.
