To Pity or Not to Pity
When someone’s going through a tough time, is your emotional response pity?  Most of us don’t like to be pitied because even if it’s well intentioned, it comes across as condescending and demeaning.  None of us want to make others feel that way.

So the next time you start to feel pity, stop and let compassion, respect and dignity come through in your attitude.

Remind yourself: I’ve gone through my trials and tribulations, and I’ve grown and strengthened.  Now it’s my opportunity to support and be there for another.
