Hope?

So it turns out that, with effort and total concentration, I can for brief periods of time put myself in other peoples shoes (some people more easily than others). It’s too bad that it requires too much time and focus to be able to do in an actual face-to-face conversation, where I also have to keep my mind on things like my expression, the other fellow’s expression, body language, etc. Maybe someday.

It should also be noted that all of the empathy in the world does not make bad news less bad. Neither do apologies.
