This post comes from a series I wrote as part of a private Tumblr account, way back in 2012. I thought it would be cool to reproduce some of my amateur psychology here 🙂
I believe the key to self development is empathy. You can’t improve yourself if you don’t care about yourself, and you can’t care about yourself until you learn to care about people in general. And you can’t care about people, unless you can put yourself in their shoes and live their lives for a little while.
