The truth is that when other people are hurting, I hurt too. When they cry, I mist up with them. When they laugh, I join in and when they are lonely I understand. Don’t we all feel connected to some extent and isn’t that a good thing?
We don’t want to become so hardened to the feelings of others that we turn away from their pain. Or do we? What do you think? Does it make you uncomfortable to witness human suffering? It’s hard to know how to handle these situations, but I don’t think we can go wrong by feeling compassion and showing it.
