Does it ever feel like people are all self-absorbed jerks? Like they’re not listening? Only in it for themselves. You’re not crazy. Empathy is declining.
Here’s how to be more empathetic:
- Listen. And then open up until you have a “vulnerability hangover.”
- Try meditation. Broaden the loving fuzzy feelings past family and friends.
- Expose yourself to different ways of living. Hang out with different people. If it can end slavery, it can help you.
