28 Days of Gratitude – Day 8

Today I am grateful for compassion. To hold space for those around us and gift them compassion allows for them to heal. For a person to hold space and offer compassion can mean the absolute world to that person. Compassion quite literally saves lives.

When we feel truly seen and heard, we return to a safe place within our relationships. It is a wonderful thing for our emotional self to be honoured.

Sometimes compassion is not forthcoming from another. Sometimes we might liken it to drawing blood from a stone. During these times we can learn to have compassion for and heal ourselves.

How do we feel? What has caused us to feel this way?

What can we say to ourselves today to help heal that inner wound? What action can we take to honour our own emotions within this moment? What boundaries might we need to put in place?

One of the greatest gifts I think I have ever received from myself, or the other is compassion.

This content is created by Rachel Reeves, who has always been a deep thinker. She previously played the supporting role in the lives of those around her, and very much held back on sharing this gift fully with other's. This is Rachel stepping very much out of her comfort zone, into what she now knows to be her inner calling, and sharing her thoughts with the world.
