Being a bully does not make you strong; surviving one does. Cultivate empathy and create a safe environment for others to grow and develop without fear, judgment, or shame.

Best-selling author, religious expert and TED Prize winner Karen Armstrong has studied all of the world’s great religions. She says she’s identified the common thread that runs through them all: compassion

Armstrong sits down with Oprah this coming week and shares the one thing everyone can start doing today to live a more compassionate life.

“Take a little practice,” Armstrong says. “You can do it all day and every day. When you’re in the office, or at home, or going to work on the commuter train, look at the person sitting next to you and say, ‘What do I know about this person? What do I really know about this person?’ I may see them every day, but do I know what makes her cry in the night? What do I know about the girl who’s checking me out in the supermarket? And sometimes I’m impatient [and think], ‘This woman’s stupid, she’s so slow.’ What do I really know about that woman? Her home circumstances, her suffering? Just get in that habit.”

“Behind each person lies a whole history of associations, of joy, of happiness, of events that we’ll never know.”
