"Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It's a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity."

-Pema Chodron

All the more reason to save yourself first.

Though there's nothing wrong with givng some of your equals a little humanitarian kick in the ass.
