Empathy costs nothing..

When a girl is molested/raped, stop asking the girl accusingly, “What were you wearing? Why were out so late?”

When a woman moves out of an abusive relationship, stop telling her, “Why did you walk out? You should have tried harder and adjusted.”

When a child is dealing with body image issues, stop jibing, “Oh my God! Look at you. Do something about your body. You look so ugly.”

When a student goes outside to study and dies under unfortunate circumstances, stop asking the parents, “Why did you send him/her to study abroad?”

Don’t say or ask all these; you never know you might be in their place one day. You never realize the pain until it has happened to you or your loved ones.

A little empathy doesn’t hurt. It doesn’t cost anything..
