Having compassion

We can see there is pain and struggle in the world.
There are times when we are in pain and struggle.
When this happens, we have a choice as to how we deal with it.
We can shut-down, which leads to feelings of loneliness and isolation.
We can attempt to escape it by focusing on fixing other people's pain.
Or we can choose to be fully alive in the experience knowing that
this is part of life and that we are not alone.
