As a society, we often forget about our responsibility to one another, so absorbed with our rights.
A homeless person with a sign is at the corner-
Do you wish “someone “ would do something about it, forgetting that in this moment you just might have the ability, the power to alleviate a little bit of suffering?
How we treat the most vulnerable among us says….
Let’s say you don’t see yourself as the type of person who gives to others.
Would you consider talking to your congress person about how much money we give “the Military” but we treat our homeless veterans as if we don’t have enough money?
Look up how many homeless veterans there are in this country and why. Educate yourself from multiple sources. Just one source means you don’t care about the truth, just want to confirm the bias you already have. We are beyond that here. Let’s confront ourselves and challenge ourselves to do this with integrity. No cheating, no shortcuts.
Your empathy is too important.
Are you able to make the connection between these examples and your empathy in your relationship?
