Compassion is free. To have empathy, sympathy or understanding for someone else’s plight costs you nothing but it may be invaluable to them. We all need a helping hand, kind word or helpful advice from time to time. Doesn’t it mean the world to you when someone spreads a little cheer during those times when you feel down and out? Be freely compassionate to someone whenever given the opportunity because, you never know when your own time of sorrow will come.
