I'm currently reading The Book of Joy right now. I'm obsessed. A similar ring to metaphysical beliefs on life's trials. That it is not so much what happens to us, it is how we respond to it. 

I am learning a lot on compassion right now. What it means to have compassion and even for those that we perceive to cause us harm.

I look forward to the day when I don't have to step back and try to reset my brain to the vibe of compassion, to a day when it just comes naturally even with "bullies."

We are all humans, all experiencing varying degrees of suffering. What a beautiful concept to no longer take things to heart, but to offer your heart to someone hurting so bad that they turn to anger and hate
