Examples of compersion in a Sentence

  1. Damon Jacobs:

    We are taught in this culture to react to perceptions of scarcity with suspicion and attack, instead of practicing the idea of' compersion', or joy in someone else's joy, we are conditioned to respond to joy and success with,' You shouldn't feel good when I don't feel good.' This sets up a nasty cycle of blame-attack-separation, which ultimately fuels our epidemic of alienation and loneliness.
