Thank you for this. It is critical that we spend some time reassessing our life’s work and grow our empathy, our creative soul. Without empathy, there is no real progress. Without connection, there is no depth.
“Self-absorption in all its forms kills empathy, let alone compassion. When we focus on ourselves, our world contracts as our problems and preoccupations loom large. But when we focus on others, our world expands. Our own problems drift to the periphery of the mind and so seem smaller, and we increase our capacity for connection — or compassionate action.”
