It is important to try and live a life where we are present in all circumstances, paying attention to our surroundings and paying attention to how our behavior, prejudices, views, wants can have an impact on feelings and outcomes for other people. Being present helps you to cultivate empathy, to be kind and loving towards others even those who are not our friends.
I am working on showing more empathy, and being more aware of what happening too, and with people around me. It is important that I teach this to my children.
