I've been thinking a lot about compassion lately. About how I desire to feel and show more compassion. 

We as a people are so quick to jump into judgement of ourselves and others. We judge the quiet thoughtful one as stuck up, the passionate one as obnoxious, the bully in need of punishment, the sensual one as shameful, and it goes on. 

We forget that each of these have their own story of pain and grief. Complex stories of success and failure, inspiration and anger, joy and sadness. 

I wish for a more kind and gentle world full of patience and understanding. So I'm starting with consciously replacing judgement with compassion toward myself. ❤
