How to Use Compassion to Rise Above the Hate and Intolerance of Others — Yay With Me

It’s tough to be willing to understand others, especially when they embody emotions that are so primitive. It’s like looking into a boiling pot of fire and toxic sludge that’s spitting at you – and attempting to honor and respect it. It can feel like a betrayal of self, and worse, just interacting with it can infect you and bring you down. There are lots of toxic people out there, and because of their power to hurt, the natural reaction is to self-protect and stay as far away from them as possible. But when it comes to people you love, live with, or work with— you can’t shut them out of your life – so this is a set of tools to help you in the face of that. It’s an advanced personal practice of sorts, in that it elevates you above the emotion – via a way to understand them and better relate to why they are the way they are. Because in the face of intolerance, the best weapon is always a state of non-judgment and compassion.
