I think ppl need to understand that compassion is learned not something your born with. True some may be born with a lack of compassion but for alot of ppl, they have the ability to learn it. I used to lack compassion for others when i was younger cuz i couldn’t give it to myself. That’s why i didn’t have good hygiene and sometimes when i got hurt, i didn’t bother to mend my wounds. That’s why i lost so many grand opportunities to make friends, money, so on. I was so angry, depressed, lonely, etc. cuz i didn’t give self love. When i started loving myself, i started giving to others and i felt better. I felt free and relieved.
