The Dalai Lama once said, "If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion." Time to show that you have matured into a compassionate person.
As Ash Wednesday approaches I hope that you are considering Project Compassion as a learning experience through which you might develop empathy for people who are suffering and begin to re-assess your own wants and needs.
Compassionate people know what it's like to be down on their luck, and they keep those experiences in mind to develop a more empathetic nature, whether through volunteering or just simply networking. "Compassionate people are very outward-focused because they think and feel about other people," Firestone says. "They have that ability to feel others' feelings, so they're very socially connected."
