Do I have the courage to go against fear and deception and those who want to control me?
Do I know that there’s difference between someone taking something from me vs not giving me something? The first is an evil..the second is an inconvenience.
Do I have the mind to know what’s important and right…? and to fight for that, without anger or menace, regardless of the consequence?
The thing I didn’t realize about empathy is how it enables me to become better.
I didn’t realize it until I had enough confidence to step out from the house of fear I’d built around me.
Empathy gives the strength to absorb other people’s stories and opinions …to simply listen. And then realize they are in need, just like you.
A need to do something significant that people care about.
