Have A Heart of Compassion
Dictionary meaning of compassion
“Compassion: A feeling of deep sympathy and sorrow for another who is stricken by misfortune, accompanied by a strong desire to alleviate the suffering [make the suffering go away]”.
I was listening to the United States President-Elect Joe Biden today during his response on the November job report and was also answering questions from the Press. I felt his heart of compassion for the citizens’ hardships and losses. And then I said to myself that this man has a compassionate heart. How encouraging that is! He communicates organically to people; he feels their pains and struggles and understands their situation. He showed empathy, humility, understanding, and compassion through his words.
It was how I felt listening to him that prompted me to write on this topic, and my hope is for the content here to resonate with somebody, I want somebody to be encouraged and motivated to show compassion for others. And for anyone going through some tough times, to take heart, and believe that there will still be a light at the end of the tunnel! Everyday Effects Of Disappointments In Peoples’ Life
Many People Are Hurting
No matter where we live, the part of the world we come from, if you look around, you will find out that so many people are hurting. A lot of people are facing health challenges, COVID-19 challenges, financial challenges, parting challenges, job challenges, all kinds of challenges. https://www.projectinspired.com/have-a-heart-of-compassion/
Many, especially here in the U.S. have lost their loved ones, and some are battling with their lives in the hospitals as you read this! Many people are hurting believe it. As a result, so many people have become despaired, losing hope of recovery. Many have shattered dreams this 2020 because of what they’ve been through.
All Kinds of Suffering – All Kinds Of Kindness
And many more had made some bad choices that have affected their lives and progress. People are in pain, suffering in silence unless they open up to you to share their problems. This week, I had two people who shared with me the ordeal they have been through. One of them, a young man in his late 30s told me how he wanted to commit suicide. Another young man just lost his wife who left him with 3 little kids of 3, 5, and 7 years old. Just imagine how devastating that is to a young man.
It is in moments of dark experiences, devastation, difficulties, pains, and sufferings, that we need each other most to be a shoulder to lean on. We do that when we show or share our moral values of goodness, humility, selfless love, empathy. I think that’s the kind of morality that President-Elect Joe Biden has shown.
Moral Values Can’t Be Discounted Show Kindness
We are to cultivate moral values, cherish it, and live by them. Regardless of our position in life, rich or poor, learned or unlearned, white or black. Our values should be part of us. If we have the heart of compassion, please show it to the hurting world in any little way you can. Give encouraging words and not judging people. A life of pain and suffering is no respecter of persons. It does not discriminate between political parties or religions, etc.
Show little kindness, shine your light for everyone to see, make a difference. Avoid the cold or hot war going on in Social Media these days. People are understandably angry, but we can heal and recover from all kinds of hurts, and heal from all kinds of depression that a lot of people are suffering today! Let us join our efforts to send healing, hope, and peace to the hurting world.
