Burden And Compassion

When people have no option than to remain with us because we pay them salary or feed them or own where they live or buy what they wear, when they depend on us completely and have no other option than to depend on us, they can endure anything to keep getting the privilege we offer. They can submit to eating our poop, licking our feet and offering their backs as our legs’ rest. It’s human to feel that since we are doing all these things for them, they owe us their lives in total submission and obedience. That’s “humane”. But it’s  inhumane to subject those we cater for to physical and emotional torture because we know they have no option than stick with us. Thinking about the helplessness of their situation, we can offer to help these people and treat them with compassion.
