Compassion makes Relationships better

To be human is basic, the foundation from which we all arise. You are born as a human being and that cannot change until you die. Everything else whether you are educated or uneducated, young or old, rich or poor –is secondary. In truth you and I already know each other, profoundly, as human beings who share the same basic goals. We all seek happiness and we do not want suffering.

The reason why people are in always in a hurry is because we are all motivated by the desire to make ourselves happy. To do so is right. However we must keep in mind that too much involvement in the superficial aspects of life will not solve our larger problem of discontentment. But if you have more of love. Compassion and concern for others, then these things become a real source of happiness. If you have abundance of this, then you will not be disturbed by even the most uncomfortable circumstances. If you nurse hatred, you will not happy even in the midst of wealth. So if we really want happiness we must widen the sphere of love.

We are all born helpless. Without our parents kindness we could not survive much less prosper. When children .If this kindness is not there , the child lives in constant fear and they suffer their whole lives. Whether you are young or old, the need for kindness is always there. Kindness and love gives a real sense of sisterhood or brotherhood and these are very precious. They make community possible and therefore are an essential part of any society.

As children ,we depend on the kindness of our parents and as we get old, we depend on the kindness of others. Between these times of being young or old, we believe we are independent, but we are not. Our society exists because we as human beings cannot live in complete isolation. As we are interdependent on each other, we should live with positive attitude and concern for others. When you gain more appreciation both for the kindness intentionally bestowed on you by others and for the unintended kindness reflected in the goods and services you depend on daily you will contribute to a healthier society. Without appreciation of kindness, society breaks down.
