We are often told how important it is to be there for our spouse or loved one when they are feeling down, but research shows it is just as important to be there when they are feeling good too. So when someone shares something about their day that made them happy or feel good, make sure you’re actually listening and enjoying it with them.

We don’t always have to like someone for us to have love for them.

Compassion is our ability to understand and sympathize with the suffering of others.

How to Completely Forgive Yourself

forgive yourself

“Every saint has a past and every sinner has a future.”– Oscar Wilde


We have a natural tendency to blame ourselves when something goes wrong in our lives. This is because we have evolved to experience emotions like shame and regret, especially when we behave in a ways that violate the expectations of ourselves and others.

For example, say as a child you get into a fight with one of your younger siblings. You both want to play a video game, but it’s single-player, so you are both arguing over when it’s your turn to get to play.

Your sibling refuses to give up the game, so you get angry and you punch them really hard in the stomach. They get the wind knocked out of them, fall to the floor, and start crying.

Most of the time, you’re going to feel a little bad and regret that decision. That’s because you acted in a way that disappointed yourself. You got caught in the heat of the moment, you acted impulsively, and that ended up hurting someone you really care about.
