Allow others to show compassion

I was suddenly reminded of Ajahn Brahm’s talk, “Only The Body Is Sick” today and remembered an advice he gave regarding compassion that one should not reject other people from showing compassion. If you’re sick and someone shows concern to you, don’t brush it off with, “Its alright, I’m okay”. Don’t deny others of the opportunity to practice compassion. Let them take care of you even if you don’t really need it, because you’re not just helping yourself, you’re actually mostly helping them.
