60/365 – ” When do you struggle to maintain your compersion? “

60/365 – ” When do you struggle to maintain your compersion? ”

For the last couple of days, I’ve been noticing moments where I struggle to maintain full compersion (see: 31/365)for friends that I love and care about.

Interestingly, the struggle seems to have nothing to do with the level of trust, intimacy, or connection I feel for my friends – but it seems to be a function of how comfortable I feel in a given situation.

The more comfortable, confident, and secure I feel in myself, the easier it is for me to feel a sense of compersion for others.

Looking back at my past, a similar pattern can be found.

Moments where I felt a sense of jealousy, envy, or resentment, are almost always linked to feelings of insecurity in myself.

Nurturing compersion for others may hold the key to nurture a sense of confidence and security in ourselves.
