The golden rule of the sympathy is that it is an act to receive and equally reciprocate.
Put yourself in place of others:
Put you- self in the shoes of others, see and try to feel the pain of suffering that the other person is feeling. By doing this you can see what the other person is feeling and how can you help them. And this will ensure the reciprocity of the same. If you are able to feel the pain of the others, this means you are able to fulfill the purpose of your life. Since life is tough, yet we are all do the best we can.
Put the thought to action of compassion:
Even before practicing or excising the act of the kindness, it is necessary to give compassion and kindness a thought. Put the thought to actions, by doing abrupt and casual actions of compassion. Nothing big is necessary a small gesture like a friendly smile or even a kind word of the encouragement. Or even thumbs up is enough to inculcate the compassion in life. It is often said thought before action, but here do not think about doing an act of compassion or kindness.
Show compassion even to those who are not worth it:
You can show compassion to those who are not worth it. Someone who mistreats you or does not has the same level of compassion like you, be kind and compassionate towards them. This is the litmus test to know whether or not you are cultivating the compassionate feelings in you or not. Being kind to those you are mistreating you is tough. But with a minor act of retreating yourself, any and every time when someone mistreats you. Retracting is not reacting with anger or frustration, rather calm down and detach yourself from the situation.

Do not be selfish and self- involved or self – obsessed. As we all are one, practice shifting your focus on other. Think ‘we’ before ‘I’, this however does not mean to be extra nice to all. It simply means to widen and broaden your horizon and scope of thinking and awareness. And it will help you become more compassionate.
Become a self- healer:
