Contrary to popular belief, being compassionate will actually benefit you more than others. It will erode the edges of your ego and make you feel good. Furthermore, when you extend compassion to those around you, it becomes very easy to win them over, especially in tense situations. This will make it far more likely for them to help you out and do you favors.
Understand why you should extend compassion to others.
Extending compassion to others isn’t a purely altruistic act; there are several benefits you can reap from it.
Extend compassion every chance you get.
The next time you’re in a situation where you can be compassionate and/or nice to someone, do it!
