I want to recommend a really terrific article on the importance of true empathy and how to cultivate it. Unfortunately, there's not really a good way to excerpt this article so I'm going to ask you to go read the whole thing. (It's not very long!) It's on the CNN website and is called "Empathy deficit disorder -- do you suffer from it?"


  1. I really liked that article. It's amazing how painful an intended comforting comment can be sometimes.

  2. I completely agree with you, Maggie. People can say some extraordinarily stupid (and unintentionally cruel) things at times.
