How is your personal exploration into compassion and “true care” going?

Jonathan is back to help us continue on our journey as we begin to truly immerse ourselves in compassion. Jonathan’s questions for reflection are as follows:

  1. Have you yourself (or a close friend) experienced emotional distress, even when very young? Did you (or your friend) receive true compassionate care (as a mother comforting her only child)?
  2. What was the experience of compassion like for you (or your friend)? Did compassion fully address your distress? How long did the benefits last? Did your life change?
  3. What do you think distinguishes compassion from other types of care.
