Empaths, I yearn for you

"Empathy - understanding and entering into another's feelings; fellow feeling, sympathy - sharing the feelings of others (especially feelings of sorrow or anguish)"

Reason respects the differences, and imagination the similitudes of things” PB Shelley

I am having a misanthropic moment where I really wish we bred more empathy into our children; that we led them down a path of civility, pride in care of others, and not the "competitive edge".

I don't know too many successful people, on a human level, who live in bubbles. Bubble people, as I like to call them, exist for their own fulfilment, an expend less energy than they should on other people....
