Sunshine and Chaos’s Sunday Quotes – empathy

1150357_372852859509243_1167036038_nToday’s quotes, https://sunshineandchaos.wordpress.com/2015/03/29/sunday-quotes-empathy/ , are about empathy.  The one that rang true for me was by Colin Gorman: “Empathy is not a substitute for introspection. Stepping into someone else’s shoes because yours don’t fit means you still get to walk in ill-fitting shoes, you just don’t get to own them.” 

As I had written in the article, https://ataxiama.wordpress.com/2015/02/20/word-of-the-day-doggo/, since Ataxia is an invisible disability, I feel the need to give people the benefit of the doubt; to try to see things from their angle.
