    There have been times when I have been deeply hurt. And there have been times in my life when I have hurt others too. Such experiences have made me realize that we all have the potential to hurtourselves and hurt others close to us. It does not mean we are bad or evil. We do bad or evil things. When I relate to hurt in this sense I feel empathy for me and for others. Such empathic understanding of my own wrongdoings helps me heal my wounds and the wounds I have created to others.

    Realizing and accepting the fact that we are human beings prone to doing wrong things and making mistakes. We are not perfect.I hold my wrongdoing hand with empathy and compassion. Being empathic and compassionate to me helps me for my self-redemption and also redemption for the otherperson.
    Self-awareness is the guiding light to me and it helps me evolve and grow in the realm of goodness, kindness, love and compassion.
