Compassion

I will see a stranger today through the eyes of compassion.
I will remind myself that this stranger has parents and people who love her, just like me.
I will remind myself that this stranger has moments of joy, just like me.
I will remind myself that this stranger has moments of anguish and suffering, just like me.
I will remind myself that this stranger will one day grow old, just like me.
I will remind myself that this stranger will go through the cycles of illness and recovery, just like me.
I will remind myself that this stranger will die one day, just like me.
Through the eyes of compassion, I will know this stranger not as a stranger anymore but as a living soul, just like me.
