I used to believe empathetic people dominated the earth. That the planet will never be short of its production of these humans who possess as much emotion as thought, who thinks for people and knows how to be kind, whether or not they mean so. But after going through a lot of reality checks with myself, I realised I’ve been nothing but naive. Empathetic people are scarce, and the capability to feel empathy is such a rare and precious trait for anyone to have.
