I am grateful for watching my dad interact with strangers in need as a child. Whether it was pushing old ladies carts picking up something that has fallen or given out his hanky he demonstrated the kind of character I wanted to have.
Empathy is the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. It is the experience of understanding another person's condition from their perspective. Sensitivity can be viewed as a strength rather than a weakness.
I don't know your struggle, I don't know what it's like to be you. Do I have more privilege than you? Then it's MY responsibility to be the first to bring empathy to the table, to really listen to your silenced voice.
I don’t have many, but those I have are worth more than all the rest of them combined.
