If you don’t naturally come off as someone who is greatly compassionate or empathetic, studies prove it’s a habit that can be cultivated.
You act on your compassion.
An important part of compassion is giving back, even in the smallest of ways. Performing actions that are loving and compassionate, we experience more love all around us. Compassionate people constantly act on their compassion, whether it’s through volunteering at seniors home or being a kind friend — and in return, they’re much happier because of it.

Many studies show that adults can be trained to be more compassionate. The studies investigate whether training adults in compassion can result in greater altruistic behavior and related changes in neural systems underlying compassion. YES!
