Empathy

Empathy for me is mostly a trained process. If you give me a rapist or a murderer, I will empathise with it to understand where it comes from; if you give me a victim or any other stranger, I will empathise with it to understand where it comes from. That's just the way my brain works these days, and I am happy to have curated it to this quality of operations.

Generally, I've also trained myself to minimise empathy with whiners regardless of gender, race, creed, color - etc. but with some consideration for situation, environment, and other contexts.

"Friends," is a loaded word - which I try to avoid. I'm happy being labeled "a friend," but not everyone's happy being labeled as "my friend." So I say, everyone is an acquaintance.
