We, as humans, like to categorize. It makes the world easier to digest.
We fit the people around us into labels: users, coworkers, competitors.
Then they’re no longer just people – they’re the boxes we’ve put them into. And we’ve removed the burden of feeling compassion.
Which is total nonsense.
The world runs on compassion. The world celebrates compassion.
We need to find that presence in ourselves.
We are only as much as what we can give to others.
