Is compassion an action or an emotion? Some religions consider compassion an emotion, like feeling empathy for another person. In modern psychology, compassion is regarded as an action aimed at ridding others of their troubles or consoling them in their suffering (Chowdhury, 2019). Regardless of these two differing positions, compassion is not a give or take scenario. People who show compassion do not expect to receive the same or get something in return. Compassion is simply kindness in action!
