I think that this might be true! Think about it.
Don't you just feel so much better when you are compassionate towards someone than if you seek to lay the blame on another or you severely judge someone - or even wish for them to receive punishment in order for YOU to "feel better"? Yep, showing compassion not only helps the person or persons to whom you are showing this compassion, but you receive the added bonus of feeling good yourself. "Win, win" (as they say).
