I am going to try and work on being more compassionate.

It's very difficult to do that when the majority have views which are exploitative at core. And they use their power to extract value and concessions from someone with less.

I want social ties to be symbiotic, where all parties benefit from their relationships. I often have to get pushy and assertive in response and that disconnects me from myself , and I find that I am doing the same against them, exploiting their weaknesses and hurting them for their wrongs.

Today I am in a position of power and I need to empathize with those that I perceive as wrong, or even a threat to me.

I need to know when to let go and to have faith. I will be disappointed plenty of times and that's okay.

I see so much compassion in you but you know your heart better than anyone and we can all be better people and we should all recognize that.

Compassion leads to understanding, acceptance and clarity.
Compassion is necessary for love and you are filled with love and understanding.

So do what your heart tells you to do because this world needs all of the compassion, understanding and love it can get.
From you and from us all and if our love and compassion makes us vulnerable then it is a small price to pay for being the best that we can be and the love in our hearts and the love we may inspire in others will be our reward.
