One of the oddities of being human is never really knowing how other people’s minds work, yet constantly being required to make decisions as if you do.

Empathy is the ability to understand and share the feelings of others, but while I can weave a story about your experiences and perspective, it will always have elements of guesswork.

But then, we don’t even really understand how our own mind works.

All we know is what we experience.
