Connection in conversation

Ya I completely understand where you’re coming from.
People who are mean are easy to hate and it’s comfortable to hate them. But when we choose to be uncomfortable and see that their pain is derived from all our own pain, the pain of thinking we’re unlovable and unworthy of belonging, then it becomes easier to be empathetic toward them.

But empathy is a skill set. And the only way to practice empathy is to be vulnerable with ourselves first.
If we’re not kind to ourselves, how do we expect to be kind to others?
