(lol This face has been appearing in many of my posts in various forms! I love it! It’s a flower pot in the backyard and I take many pics of it, this one I distorted and put a bokeh effect and colored it. I use my camera now for pics but haven’t yet uploaded them to my comp. so don’t have very many pics to use until I do that soon! So the face it is for now!)
“Compassion hurts. When you feel connected to everything, you also feel responsible for everything. And you cannot turn away. Your destiny is bound with the destinies of others. You must either learn to carry the Universe or be crushed by it. You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enough to sit down at the same table with its worst horrors.” ~Andrew Boyd
What a beautiful quote that rings so true!
Compassion and Empathy can be painful but it's worth it! But it doesn't have to drag us down. We can learn to carry it well and use it for good, to help heal, inspire, uplift others in any way we can even in the most simplest ways like an encouraging word, an inspiring quote, a warm embrace….
Much love & light to you!
