Reasoning Is Empathy
Empathy is understanding the reason(s) why someone is the way they are. This doesn’t mean that we condone the action: we aren’t judging, we’re just understanding the cause of the effect. It’s possible to reason without blaming.
We even have to empathise with our self.
Why are we the way we are?
Could it be that we simply adopted indoctrination?
Even our criticism is indoctrination –
all our fault-finding has been said before, and got us nowhere.
It all comes down to believing words,
rather than what is experiencing those words.
People abuse or ignore one another
because of a lack of inner confidence.
We can all empathise with this – we know how it feels.
