After I was diagnosed with Breast cancer in 2006 compassion really blossomed in me. All of the sudden instead of getting irritated with the person slowing me down or causing frustration I wondered what they might going through personally. After all, someone zoning out at the red light may be distracted because they just found out that their father was terminally ill. That angry customer at work may have recently lost a loved one. That scatterbrained chick may have just finished chemo or may have an illness you do not see. So when the urge to judge or criticize floods over you…. Let it go right on through. For as we are judged so shall we be judged.
