Compassion changed my heart. There is a woman in my church congregation with whom I have had several bad experiences. These experiences have created a negative feeling within me towards her. I struggled for a long time with these negative feelings until one Sunday when she stood up in front of the congregation and shared her heart. She spoke honestly about her feelings of low self-esteem and fear. What she said touched my heart and for the first time I felt compassion for this woman.
After that experience I no longer felt negatively towards her. In fact, I was able to show love to her whenever we worked together on a project. Have you ever experienced the healing power of compassion? Please share your experience.
