  • Tell Me What's Compassion?

    What's compassion? Compassion to me, giving them a piece of your heart is showing kindness andlove toward others, and asking for nothing back in return. I'm blessed to spread compassion toindividuals who might not receive it otherwise, and to work with customers and their familieseveryday, or regularly.

    I recently had the chance to go to with a client who had been in Boca Raton, Florida who wasrecuperating from a broken hip. I went to visit her to check to see how she was feeling, and I alsowanted to make sure that she knew that I was thinking of her.

    Once I walked in the area, her eyes lit up and she said, "What are you doing here?"

    "I came to see you because I care about you, and I want to see how you might be feeling." I reacted.

    We spoke for over one hour about her thoughts on her treatment, the facility's food, for once shereturned home, and her plans.

    It made me feel really good that I possibly could show her love and kindness. It made a big impacttogether with her, although stopping by to see was such a small action from me.

    We believe that compassion makes all of the difference. You can find numerous approaches to showcompassion and they may be as easy as calling to check on someone who we know is sick, or byvisiting with him or her if they're in the hospital. Showing empathy can also not be as difficult asmaking the effort to actually listen to others. We get so caught up in attempting to "fix" everything,when often times, people just need a person to listen to them, understand they are heard, whichtheir feelings are validated.

    I encourage us to be the definition of compassion and also to demonstrate love and kindness towardeveryone you meet.
