Limitless Compassion

The truth is that compassion is not a limited commodity. Those who have said that we shouldn’t feel compassion toward Cecil the Lion because it won’t allow us to feel compassion for their cause have no idea what compassion is, and are confusing compassion and empathy. The term “compassion fatigue” is a misnomer, and really should be called “empathy fatigue,” which does come in limited supplies. Perhaps the bigger question is, “who are you to tell me what to feel?”
