Love and compassion are necessities. Without them humanity cannot survive. But, being compassionate is a challenging ideology when we feel cheated or being manipulated. Often, we feel that people take our empathy or compassion for granted. Sometimes, people present us with manipulative or false information to simulate the feeling of compassion in us for their benefit.
