What got you started down this path? I mean, had it never occurred to you before?

Man fairly recently I had a situation...

And something inside me said, "The proper reaction is to have compassion. And sometimes, compassion is what you don't say, or don't do."

I took it to mean, you can either be an asshole to somebody... or you can show compassion by not being an asshole.

shrug

And since then, this concept of compassion has been sort of expanding in my consciousness. Today I ran into another situation where it was like... compassion is what's called for here, and everyone who isn't showing that compassion is handling this the wrong way.

Compassion can be misguided in some cases. In the corporate world, people are scared to death of criticizing or rebuking another person, so they say nothing. Then the person in question never knows something is amiss, or that (s)he needs to be doing something a different way.

I think that you can speak your mind and still be compassionate; for you are acting on your moral beliefs, or whatever. I don't think 'doing nothing' automatically equates to compassion.

Yeah but it’s like...

You can either call somebody a worthless dumbfuck piece of shit, or you can hold your tongue...

Holding your tongue (i.e. doing nothing) is the more compassionate approach, in that instance.

That's what I mean. A lot of people think it's compassionate to pretend they didn't notice you've been walking around with your fly open all day. I think it would more compassionate to tell you so you don't face further embarrassment by continuing to go around with your fly open.

Naughty, I only look at someones eyes. Anything other than that could be misconstrued as sexual harassment. However if someones fly is open they are most likely like LCK or Weinstein and just like to pull it out and jerk it. It very natural

People lash out in anger. Not because they are an asshole...

It's because inside they are hurting for some reason that we don't know about.

It's there defense mechanism.

What naughty? If you're approaching someone from 20 yards away, there's no way you're not getting a full-length view of them.

This is genius, I wish I had thought of this years ago. FUCK. I could have been an asshole at heart and nobody would have ever known. This is like the ultimate secret we need to teach our children.
