Compassion and Mercy

Hello everyone this fine morning!

At least, I think it's morning for most of us. :P

Anyway, this weekend I learned a lot about compassion and mercy, so I wanted to make a little post about it.

Compassion and mercy go hand-in-hand with one another, but they aren't the same thing.

Compassion is when you wanna help someone who needs help. When you have compassion for someone, you feel bad for them. You feel sympathy.

Mercy is when you wanna give someone a second chance, even if they don't deserve it.

When somebody does something wrong, we need to be merciful and forgive them, because there's always a chance they will learn their lesson and move on. We can't fight forever, can we?

There's a picture of a meditating Rafiki on my refrigerator with a quote on it (don't ask x3). It says:

"Holding a grudge is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die."

Anyway, we also need to have compassion. For example, if we are angry, and start making wrong decisions, we might feel bad for someone who was affected by these decisions. It's kind of hard to explain, but hopefully you get the idea.

Remember, this world needs less big and important people. It needs more people who are nice, compassionate, and merciful!


  1. If this is about TC didn't we already give him a 2nd chance (3 actually if I remember correctly) Eh I'm willing to give him a second chance, he hasn't done anything drastic recently. Sorry if it wasn't about TC. I slept late and horribly so my mind is off a little.


    1. No, you're fine. It wasn't aimed towards Taco. It's just a good lesson to learn, that's all. c:

    2. Ok. Though I do have a tendency to hold a grudge but I can't help it. I try not to. But if the person didn't do anything seriously bad I won't, but if you hurt my friend real bad then it'll be hard to not make me a little mad at you.

      I love her new singles!!! Cant wait for the album <3
      I hope she comes to brussels for her tour

  3. This reminded me of the fight between Beagelpuppypaws and ThePurpleCloudz, they're fighting because Beagel was responsible for bullying her with Doggirl, and Cloudz wont forget that, even if they were friends. I think Cloudz should show some mercy :(
