Sympathy and Pity

Over the years, I’ve faced some tragedy and trauma.

These experiences have hardened me.

I’ve turned into a no tolerance, no nonsense, and no excuses kind of person.

After reflecting, I realize I may have become too hard, too numb, and too callused.

I don’t want others to experience loss, hardship, and adversity. I don’t want others to feel pain. I would never wish it on anybody.

While I do feel bad for those hurting, I’m going to make a more conscious effort to soften up and warm up my heart.

While I am empathetic, I’m going to make a more conscious effort to be more sympathetic and show more pity for those struggling and suffering.
