Chronically Grateful Day 13: Has Your Chronic Condition Made You More Empathetic and Compassionate? 

I’ve always considered my self a compassionate person, but there’s no doubt in my mind that my health has caused me to be more empathetic and compassionate toward others. When people express pain they are enduring, I don’t hesitate to listen and I can understand slightly where they’re coming from. I’m able to empathize with people more now that I’ve been put through this tough journey of my own. Once you’ve face a hardship, it’s much easier to not judge others and empathize with them. After working with the make a wish foundation last year, I saw how many children are going through much tougher things than I am yet they were all still the happiest kids I’ve ever seen. After working that job, I knew I wanted to get into a career where I could use my compassion to help others. Hopefully one day I’ll be able to do that ⭐️
