Empathy vs Apathy - Replacing the 'A' with 'Em'
I've always believed that a persons outlook on life and people around him/her is based on 2 key elements- Nature and Nurture? Do you agree, are there any other key elements?
Nurture - from the perspective of experiencing as many different scenarios as possible, being self-aware, happy to take feedback, learn and venture out into new unknown areas. Its all about knowing the unknown and sharing the known. When this happens it gives us the power to think about possibilities, benefit of doubt etc instead of quickly moving to judgements.
Nature - is what Rebecca talked about. I'd like to add one point here though, just like our body where we tone it by having the right intake and exercise, I believe the same can happen to our mind - say mind gym - get the right intake(experiences) and exercise it by exploring the unknown.
