Fail, Fail Again. Fail Better.
– Samuel Beckett
Change your tools. It may free your thinking.
– Paul Arden
empathy ? selfishness ? your state of mind is only your state of mind. do not expect to have your enthusiasm shared or of interest to anyone. sharing laughter and joy or even hurt and sorrow or even peace and tranquility can be enriching experiences. yes, they CAN be. but do not look for understood or sharing. empathy is not a quality everyone is capable of having. nor is it a quality some people want. do not confuse sharing with selfishness.
your words are empty to someone you love deeply.
