The stress and pressure you feel can easily infect the people around you.
For example, when you are beside a student who is nervous before a club match, you would feel nervous. Listening to a subordinate who is depressed can make you feel depressed too. The words spoken by a frustrated patient can change the hospital atmosphere negatively.
It’s the same when it comes to compassion and kindness.
Being around a calm person makes you feel calm.
Maybe the secret to being calm and caring is that someone is kind.
