Something only the truly hardcore and awesome people in this world possess. While it's popular to believe that only wusses are compassionate, this is not true, it takes guts to care. It's popular to call the compassionate names because people who don't care feel like bitches when they see us doing something they don't have the balls to do.
Anyone can lack compassion, it's easy, just do nothing that helps other people.
Compassion isn't to be confused with being a tool you become a tool by being compassionate and naive.
Guy1: That over-hyped celebrity tried to display compassion and gave 130k to the Salvation Army! Isn't she awesome??!!
Guy2: ohmygod she gave 0.4% of her massive fortune to an unbelievably inefficient idiot's charity? You're right! She IS amazing! She donated with a straight face!
Dude1: I saw Tony helping unload the food truck down at the food bank.
Dude2: Isn't Tony poor as hell, supporting his siblings on his 50 hour workweek, and trying to stay above water in college too? How does he find time to unload a food bank truck?
Dude3: It was on a weekend, guess he got a Saturday off.
Dude2: Damn I wish I was that cool, too bad it's so hard to be compassionate.
