Compassion

"The people that don't "deserve" our mercy, kindness, compassion, often are the ones that need it.  Though ideally you should not ever be choosing who gets it or who doesn't... you should give it freely."

Got that in an email today from a friend. And he's right. Damn it.

The situation that required the quote is too complicated to go into, but he trumped me with that. Being an asshole is so much easier than doing the right thing. Now I have to work on "improving myself" and "doing the right thing" and "dealing with my personal flaws of pride and vanity" instead of "sleeping until noon" and "watching DVDs" and "eating brownie batter ice cream while relaxing on the couch in my boxers."

Why does the universe torture me so?
