Compassion

By Joseph J. Mazzella on August 20, 2014 / 1,141 views

Posted by Joseph J. Mazzella on August 20, 2014 / 1,141 views

Compassion is such a wonderful thing. It is full of sympathy, empathy, love, goodness, kindness, and caring for others. We are all made by God to be people of compassion. Far too often, though, we fail the test. I myself have failed the compassion test more times than I care to remember. Yet, as I grow older and wiser I still strive daily to fill my soul with compassion and to share my compassion with everyone I can...

If you suffer from depression, or know someone close to you who does, then you came to the right place. No, I’m not a psychologist, but if you are anything like me, chances are that your faith in psycho-therapy has diminished, if not disappeared completely. I’m here to share with you my own experience of dealing with chronic depression, how the hopelessness that comes with it had made me attempt suicide numerous...

This is a story of a 45 year friendship. I met this young lady 45 years ago on her 14th birthday (January 10 1969). She told me that my friendship was the best gift she received that year. We were friends on and off for over those 45 years. Our live took different twist and turns, but inevitably on St. Patrick's Day 2012 that we again got close. My son Patrick (who died in 2007) I believe had a hand in this. The...

Creating That Confidence.

For a pretty long time, I never imagined I could do half of the things I have done already, there was a period when insecurities ran though my bloodstream and hesitancy boiled up to my brim. The heart said one thing and brain denied instantly, like a reflex. I fancied performing in public but I wasn’t confident of the outcome, I dreamt of giving a speech but I wasn’t confident about my fluency, I wanted to write...

Thunder

I have developed a love of thunder lately. Now, I am not talking about the kind that rumbles across the sky. I still prefer my rains to be gentle without noise, lightening, or high winds. The Thunder I am taking about isn't a storm but rather a bundle of puppy energy. Let me explain. A few weeks ago my daughter was looking through a local newspaper and saw pictures of dogs and cats up for adoption at an animal...

Hugs

This story is one I never thought mattered until recently. But now I see the impact it has had, and I feel the need to share it. It comes in three parts, but first, something about me: I am a hugger. Growing up, I came from a very affectionate family. Hugs, kisses and 'I love you''s were given freely and with much care and sincerity. In school, I never understood why others never touched each other much, why...

This story starts long ago in the dim ages, when bear and bison swarmed the forest and the prairie. Or about 2004, which ever you prefer. I was working at a sporting goods/automotive store at the time, at the customer service counter. A father and his son, who appeared to be about 11, came in and asked where the camping equipment was. I pointed them towards the two areas that held our camping merch, and was about to...

My childhood smelled a lot like Crayons. I cannot recollect when but it was Mom who first gifted me my first box of Crayon pencils, and that was one spectacular box of ten. I was totally frenzied about sketching back then, red and yellow used to be my beloved and I hated grey for some superficial reason. I used to draw outlines with pencil first and then color the insides with crayons, having a bad day was when i...

I turned on the television as I made my breakfast this morning. The commentator was going on and on about a family's bitter fight over a dead celebrity's estate. I shook my head and turned off the TV. I went back to my breakfast and ate in silence. I thought of my own inheritance. Mom, Dad, and Nana are all in Heaven now. They didn't leave me any mansions, millions, stock, bonds, planes, or yachts. What they left me...

Take a look at the picture. It may seem like there are two different tattoos but in fact it is actually one. It just depends on the angle at which you look at it. If you look at it standing at the person’s shoulder you would see it says “family”. If you look at it standing near the person’s hand when the arm is extended you would read “one love”. I thought it was pretty cool when I first saw it. Another...

She laughed and laughed. She kept on laughing for a very long time. Her laugh made her whole body shake. Each time they started to think she will stop laughing, she just took a deep breath then continued laughing even louder than before. Her laugh made some of them smile, others started to laugh, just by seeing her laughing so genuinely and without even knowing the reason behind her expression of happiness. Seeing...
