RE: Empathy
That's adorable, oh my.

Thank you for volunteering for those little animals. We need ppl like you. I could never do it.
"Of course, everyone will claim they respect someone who tries to speak the truth, but in reality, this is a rare quality. Most respect those who speak truths they agree with, and their respect for the speaking only extends as far as their realm of personal agreement. It is less common, almost to the point of becoming a saintly virtue, that someone truly respects and loves the truth seeker, even when their conclusions differ wildly." 

RE: Empathy
I have strong empathy but I work in medicine and have to take a big mental step backwards when typing some reports. It's fun to get emotionally involved when someone is doing really well and you can hear the excitement in the doctor's voice. When someone's dealing with end-stage disease and the possibilities are running out, though, the empathy is overlaid with fatalism and I'm almost in a dissociated state, typing "from a distance."
