When you are compassionate towards others, you are helping them feel supported. Many times we face problems and it is so helpful to have someone listen to us. You may find that helping your family or friends by letting them open up is a very positive force.
We all will experience stress and challenges. When you know others are in your corner, it takes away some of the pressure. You may find that one day those you supported during their tough time, will be able to assist you in a time of need.
One of the easiest gifts to share during the holiday season is to be kind. We all benefit when those closest to us demonstrate that they care about us. This brings us together and helps to limit the issues we may be facing.
