A strong message that we need to give people is that of recognizing the aspect of victimhood within themselves and shedding it at the earliest. When you compare yourself with others and find yourself lacking in a few things, you feel life hasn’t been fair to you. Victim of life!

When people don’t treat you well, you feel you are not wanted, Victim again; without realizing that THEY may be struggling to get out of their victimhood moments which stretch into years for many. Similarly, you see relationships falling prey. One dominant the other victim, the power play! Sensitive people often go under very quickly. And the game never stops, because one of the two is living a victim’s character.

Victimhood may be the result of many things. Low self worth, inability to derive moral and spiritual strength, depending on others for love and caring, not able to live with themselves and many more. But the bottom line is, if you sink into victimhood, you sink period. It is very difficult to come out of it. So, please don’t let anyone push you into that corner, not even your near and dear ones.

Stay wholesome people. And emerge stronger each time you face any situation. After all, who is going to accompany you out of this world? Certainly not those who were instrumental in your receding into that mode.

That extra modicum of compassion! A heart without compassion does not beat in a healthy way. Many of us feel we have “enough” compassion but what that “enough” actually is, no one can quantify. Neither is it easy to spell out when and where that compassion becomes unnecessary, when it gets taken for granted and doesn’t serve a purpose, sounds callous but it is not. People tend to take advantage of this pure feeling as well.

On the other hand, if the hands of compassion were absent, we would be deprived of the experience of inter connectivity, which would be a huge loss to humanity. We would be robots without the beautiful feelings that we are endowed with.

But ultimately, we do judge compassion on our own capacity for giving it as well as observing the capacity of others, hopefully learning from the latter.

We always profess to rule that doctors and nurses must have a great amount of compassion but do they all have it? In fact, all humans were meant to have it. Do they? Mercy, empathy, kindness are all off shoots of compassion. And love is the core. Do we have enough? And if we do, how much is “enough”?
