Usually if it’s someone or something you, love you can show compassion towards it, You’ll end up putting an extreme amount of love and compassion into something you care about.

Although most students despise required community service, these little actions instill appreciation within ourselves and give back with a few little heroic deeds. Our service obligations allow us to learn about ourselves in context to the rest of the world, demanding us to see people from different circumstances, and help those less fortunate. Donating cherished time and energy to charity organizations serves the greater good of society. Therefore, these hours force us to learn gratitude and be little heroes, in a
Even in the midst of darkness, light can shine through. Elie Wiesel was proof of this. Elie went through such a tragedy and still managed to show compassion to others. Compassion means to try and help others when you know something is wrong. Everyone has the ability to show compassion, but it’s the ones who take action and help others that truly make a difference.
The importance of having people around you that care enough to sacrifice everything for you, how those people deal with their grief if they ever lose you. So this legend may not be a famous New York Times novel, but it taught a profound amount
To start, Nancy Sherman says that people take too much responsibility for what happens under their watch even though they could not have kept it from happening. She says, “One feels guilty despite the fact that he knows he has done nothing wrong”(Sherman 154). Sherman is saying that people cannot forgive themselves for anything that happens in life-or-death situations, even if it wasn't their fault. Nevertheless, they should not feel guilty,
On page 101 Atticus said, "But remember this, no matter how bitter things get, they 're still our friends and this is still our home." Atticus proves that you have to think of the other people who surround you before you give time to think of what’s best for you. He also is saying at times when we think things are going rough it could always be harder for the people around us; however, we just don’t know it. With that point he shows us the importance of how we treat others around us the same way we would want to be treated. Juror 8 said, “It 's not easy to raise my hand and send a boy off to die without talking about it first.
The compassion comes out when it’s needed the most in the situation, grieving is something that is natural especially after the death of someone that was close to Bilbo, he has proven that compassion is something that is basically needed to maintain a friendship but, that friend is now gone. Sympathy is a natural human emotion that is essential to person, some may experience it in different ways than others, it is still important though. Compassion was something that obviously helped Bilbo’s final change at the end of the book, he is truly a much different individual than he was at the beginning of the page turning
The guilt can expand the thinking that a person might have but when a person thinks about the guilt they can start healing because they come to realize the truth. In the text it states, “ We often take responsibility in a way that goes beyond what we can reasonably be held responsible for.”(para. 6, Moral Logic) This quote from the text shows that people all around the world usually take blame or responsibility over things they may have not done. That further explains the claim that people should feel survivor's guilt because it occurs in many ways, in ways where they don’t even take thought of it and just act upon feeling guilt, which allows them to
I have had a great impact on them, and so have they on me.They dug deep and discovered one of my fatal flaws, I told them about my past and why I hesitate to speak about myself. I must admit, I started as the therapist, but then they turned the table and sat down to listen to my growing despair. I feel proud of helping anyone that I can. With this experience I demonstrated to myself that I am persistent, that I do not take setbacks for granted, that I am amenable, that I care about people, that I am a human, that I give mutual support, and perhaps the most import one to accept
The Idea of core values can be troubling and can be a point of confusion; core values make us human, it is our basic need out of life, it is in our genes. The reason it can be troubling is it can sometimes be hard to describe what our true core values are in life, we feel emotions, but it can be hard to write or portrait those emotions or our thoughts to others. Which is why I have written about this, I don’t know my true core values. I have a rough idea, but how do you describe the warmth of the sun or the cool breeze of the wind to someone who hasn’t felt it? You can’t.
Compassion is an act. It can be shown in many different ways. Compassion can be used towards anyone, whether it’s a family member or a complete stranger. When a person shows compassion to someone else, they show sympathy. People do this to show that they care about what the other person is going through.
Today, I am reminded of a saying: “there are places in the heart that do not exist, pain must be so that they may be”. In the past, I reasoned this saying to be a metaphor for compassion…that as we work through our pain, we become more connected and loving toward others. What I discovered is; that introspective examination assigning the meaning to pain and painful events is soul work while the work of connecting and loving others is a good but superficial start. In the book “Care of the Soul” Thomas Moore cites: "It’s important to be heroic, ambitious, productive, efficient, creative and progressive. But these qualities don’t necessarily nurture the soul.
