Compassion is an emotion that provides a sense of shared suffering combined with a desire to alleviate the suffering of others and to show loving-kindness to those who suffer. The benefits of practicing compassion are profound and numerous, not the least of which is happiness, which can be infectious to your partner, family members, friends and even co-workers. Developing the qualities of strength, courage and resilience in the face of suffering can support a wide range of goals — from improving personal and work relationships to making a positive difference in the world.
