  1. Compassie is:
    Begaan zijn met een situatie of met iemand. Je krijgt een bewogenheid in je hart waardoor het meer is dan alleen een gedachte, maar je uitdaagt tot een beweging.

    Google translate:
    Compassion:
    Concerned with a situation or person. You get an emotion in your heart making it more than just a thought, but challenges you to a movement.

  2. I think compassion is that you feel right in your heart about other people’s lifes and what they have to deal with. and then not only to feel it but to show your feeling and to make actions from what’s in your heart….to show love and understanding, to be part of someone’s life and to share their lifes…

  3. sympathy: I acknowledge that you’re hungry, and I feel bad for you
    empathy: I acknowledge that you’re hungry, and I feel bad for you, because I once felt the same
    compassion: let’s go for a meal!

    keer gelezen, niet zelf bedacht ;)

  5. Compassie: ik voel ineens (en soms onverklaarbaar) liefde voor iemand die ik niet per se ken. Als het kan, doe ik iets. Soms eenmalig, soms loop ik voor langere tijd mee op iemands weg.
