The first step to empathy and compassion is realising the similarities between yourself and those that are suffering; the first step to forgiveness is realising that we’re all human and we all share the same capacity for fallibility and foible; the first step to growth is to recognise the value of things that are outside your current mental frameworks so that you can grow into them.

    sometimes it is really hard to feel empathy and compassion towards those who never showed to us when we needed it. :-/ It has taken me many hours of meditation to forgive. But yes, our preconceived ideas are our worst enemy 😉

      Absolutely. It is okay to take time with forgiveness. It needs to be real and mean something. Our humanity and growth doesn’t come cheap. Thanks for reading and posting.
