You will feel your mind becoming quieter and calmer and you will achieve a never-before-state of clarity. You will feel complete and fulfilled and will be able to listen to your heart and be an attractive and good human being. So follow these simple tips to cultivate compassion in you and reveal your nurturing side to the world.
Start with yourself
Often unconsciously, you become very harsh with yourself and are extremely self-critical. Relax your judgements and embrace your imperfections, because once you have accepted your flaws, only then can you practice compassion with others.
Be compassionate without being a people-pleaser
Being compassionate and kind doesn’t mean you have to be a people-pleaser. Stick to what you feel is right while not creating a wall between you and the other person to truly be compassionate and to let people show their humanness.
Don’t listen to respond, but instead listen to understand. You often while listening to the other person, think of the response you will give them once they finish. To practice compassion, listen to the other person wholeheartedly and generously and not just to give a response.
Be fully present in the moment
Don’t be distracted by your phone or the television or other people and be fully present in the conversation that you are having with the other person. Make eye contact with them and pay attention to what they are saying, to cultivate compassion in you.
Don’t be judgemental
