Dear Ecila,

I agree. I had never considered that someone could be too empathic! I just looked at it from the point of view of most people not being empathic enough. His use of current events to illustrate the point really helped me grasp it also. A new way to look at the whole issue that will make me feel a lot less guilty about trying to be "colder" to save myself. My new motto is: "It's not mine and it's not worth it".

Thanks for posting this!

Glad you got something from it CCat! Feeling less guilty is something I need to learn, too. He has a very balanced view on it. "Two people suffering only makes twice the suffering...." or something like that:)

Yes, williamrossii, a great influence, indeed!
