“A smile is cheaper than electricity, but gives as much light.“ – L’Abbé Pierre
Have you ever received a smile in an unlikely situation ? Did it make you feel a sense of satisfaction? And afterwards, did you realize that you had the same smile on your lips ?
If that is the case, then good news, you have just caught a rare disease in this day and age : Happiness !
According to the online dictionary, « l’Internaute » the definition of compassion is, “a feeling of sympathy for the problems of another person, “ which unfortunately, is frequently confused with pity . Compassion is a virtue, whereas pity is a feeling.
Both notions of happiness and compassion are closely related . Being compassion towards peers increases loyalty and dedication among colleages, which creates a warmer work environment.
Many people tend to think that the human nature is naturally selfish with the typical mindset of “who is the strongest. “ We often forget to recognize that without each other, we are nothing and no one can survive alone.
Emma Seppala, a scientist from the University of Stanford, has scientifically proven that compassion leads to happiness. In her words, “The best kept secret of happiness is to serve others.“
« We are never happy except in the happiness that we give. To give is to receive. » -L’Abbé Pierre
