Compassion: Investing in the healing of others with the willingness to bear their pain.
Awareness of others’ situations and struggles + using your time and resources to help those in need = compassion
Being compassionate requires moving your focus away from yourself by deciding to value others and shift the attention from your own preferences and desires to the suffering of those around you.
Leading with compassion means that we are very aware of the needs of those around us!
“Nobody cares how much we know, until they know how much we care.” (Teddy Roosevelt)
