Day 16: How do you feel about compersion?
Worth noting, for starters, that WordPress’s spell check does not recognize it as a word – worth changing, I think.
I find compersion to be a lovely concept. It is a fantastic thing – an ideal worth striving for, and it has been such a warm and fuzzy feeling when I have felt it.
However, I think that a lot of people make much more of compersion than is necessary – they hold it up as a thing that all people should want and I think that can be harmful for those relationships that it will simply never happen for.
