It is argued that empathy cannot be taught but could happen through our positive non-judgemental interaction with others. We need to listen and to imagine what it is like to be the other. It is always easier to interact with others if they belong to our group, and hence it is easy to empathise with them as they experience sufferings and hardships through life.

Many people have a predisposed way of seeing the bad things in life. We could look to evolution for some of the reasons why we do this. Eg: it makes sense for our ancestor who lives in the wilderness to be keenly focused on what could be negative or dangerous in order to survive.

If we all do something, anything, each and every day to show that hatred and division will never rule in our own lives, this mountain of small and arguably prosaic acts of humanity, cannot but inspire others to follow suit...and then, maybe then, Trump will be rendered impotent and will get back in his box.

They would have kept their heads down, denied knowledge of the envelope's existence, and not reached out to help that person as I had done. But if we opt for the former, what is the message we're passing on to future generations?

Being Kind To Ourselves

Just because we are utterly devoted mothers and fathers does not mean that we cannot still have our own lives, fulfil our own ambitions, enjoy our own interests - be us. Just because we have a host of pressing demands upon us, be it work or chores or family responsibilities, that doesn't mean that these should be the whole focus of our lives.

But one thing we do know is that human beings are born with their respective world-lines unmarked just like blank canvasses.

It comes to us all sooner or later.
