Are you confusing “compassion” with “helping?”
Aren’t they are two separate things?
Can you not see how compassion so often means leaving well enough alone so that others can have an experience that is UNTARNISHED by you or your beliefs?
Empathy is a gift, no doubt, but it is YOURS as much as anybody’s. Allowing your self to imagine what another may be going through is YOUR EXPERIENCE to behold, not necessarily THEIRS.
You have NO IDEA what others are actually going through, except for YOUR DISTORTED VIEW.
Which is lovely, by the way.
