Have you wondered why it sometimes seems so much easier to show strangers compassion, yet so difficult to extend the same generosity of compassion to family members - your spouse, your parents, even your children?
What makes intimate relationships such difficult spaces for compassion to be practiced? Is it because with family members, there is no way to hide, to pretend, to simply walk away?
If these questions have come up for you, shall we together explore the nuances of how compassion unfolds, or not, in families?
