Signs of a Compassionate Person

I found a great article - 8 Ways To Tell If You're A Truly Compassionate Person - and decided to make a brief summary.

These characteristics are generally associated with a compassionate person...

1. Emphasizing one's similarities to other people, rather than one's differences.

2. Giving a low priority to money.

3. Taking action by volunteering and offering specific help to individuals.

4. Being kind to yourself. Being compassionate begins with self-compassion.

5. Teaching others. Teaching another is the most powerful way to reenforce any idea in oneself.

6. Being in the moment. Compassion requires giving one's full attention to another - without multitasking, or thinking about one's next appointment.

7. Understanding that each person holds their own valid point-of-view.

8. Being grateful for other people.
