1. Thats a brilliant comment.
Well said. LOL

Although I think I have been critisized of thinking everything is about me, that is only true in the concept that a person can be part of many things.

If a person is more then just about themselves, it seems they become part of many ideas, or that is how I see it, even if the ideas do not interact with themselves.

It is really interesting. I found that when empathy expands to many people, any bad comment about anyone hurt, and any good comment felt good. Not because it was about me, but because of feeling how others might feel, then everything becomes about the person, even when it is not about them.

I think empathy has the joys of feeling the joys of many good things that occur to many people, although there is also feeling the difficulties of many people. A really big reason to try and make society better also, and it allows for much joy in life.
