QUIZ: How 
Compassionate 
are you?

Compassion is a personal quality or skill to be able to feel for another person’s suffering. The term originated from the Latin word meaning “co-suffering” and is considered to be a precursor for the associated ability of empathy, which refers to taking a step further from compassion as “feeling for another” to “feeling as another.”  The difference may be subtle, but it describes how the desire to alleviate someone’s hardship transforms into the need to act as if the pain and distress that is felt is shared.


The Dalai Lama called compassion a necessity rather than a luxury and that human survival is contingent upon the development of collective compassion.(1) Compassion is widely understood to rest on the understanding that the distress of those who suffer is not self-inflicted, and the ability to feel their pain is without blame or prejudice.


Just as having compassion is critical to serve others, self-compassion is needed to prevent burn-out and compassion fatigue, to increase your energy and physical and mental wellbeing, create balance and resilience in your life, and connect yourself to others’ needs more deeply. In short, without actively developing and practicing self-compassion, you will not have the inner resources and presence to care for someone else. Our motto is, “Look after yourself first, and you will be much better equipped to be an effective coach and serve other people for the greater benefit of common humanity."

With improved self-compassion, you may surprise yourself with renewed energy, reduced anxiety and depression, and increased resilience to handle life’s challenges. Whether you choose to do a guided meditation, take a self-compassion break, change your critical self-talk, or explore your insecurities through writing, there are many surprisingly easy and effective ways to become more self-compassionate.
