Why I support the Compassion Coalition
I strongly believe in change, and that people can attain a higher level of wellbeing. We can assess, evaluate and impart skills to human. Change is a matter of learning, experiencing and exploring. When people focus on skills, behavior and thoughts rather than difficulties, problems and pathology they can reach the sky. The sky is not the limit. Happy people, who find meaning, compassion and empathy can make their own world and others better place. I identify with GCC goals and way of operating.
