"Empathy takes effort

When we extend our heart, our soul and our feelings to another, when we imagine what it must be like to be them, we expose ourselves to risk. The risk of feeling bruised, or of losing our ability to see the world from just one crisp and certain point of view

It's easier to walk on by, to compartmentalize and to isolate ourselves.
Easier, but not worth it."
