Sympathy and empathy are needed more.
In the days we live in its helpful to have a global perspective on what is going on with your friends and neighbors. We all have our own struggles and opinions but being isolated from the struggles and opinions of others does no one good. Our life experience informs us about how to live and what to think but that gives you a narrow view of life. Our own experience is not the experience of others.
We owe it to the world to be sympathetic, empathetic and understanding. Yes it’s easier said than done but it can happen if we work hard at it. Opening our hearts and minds can do great good. It takes courage and intention to do so. Something this writer needs to do better at.
