I feel what’s missing here is the importance of a person’s own self love and respect. You can’t give what you do not have. I feel an individual that loves and respects themselves is much more positive, loving, kind and compassionate. This is not conceit - it’s having genuine reverence for all of life. And of course, feelings of gratitude and appreciation factor in too. It by no means excludes challenges or loss. In fact, those aspects in life are what can excavate one’s authenticity, strength, compassion and resilience.
