WHY DOES COMPASSION MAKE US HAPPY ?
We feel happy because when our mind gets diverted in helping others , we realize that others also have problems in life ,we are not alone and by showing compassion we feel connected to them .OUR MIND GETS DIVERTED FROM OUR PROBLEMSTaking our focus away from what’s wrong in our lives helps us to be less self-obsessed. Compassion therefore diverts our attention away from our problems which occupy our minds. When we worry less about ourselves, our own suffering seems less intense. Compassion displaces our negative emotions from the mind because we can only focus on one primary emotional state at a time. By: Pushpa Chaturvedi
