Full Answer

When a person suffers in any way, it is a common response to want to help them suffer less. Showing compassion involves empathy, which is when one person attempts to understand how another person is feeling by mentally putting themselves in that other person's shoes. Once we have imagined how that other person might be feeling, compassion can involve taking action to help them feel better. While some people may just need to vent about problems, others may need financial or medical assistance.
