this is bullshit.Heru wrote: I don't struggle to talk to women, to stand up for my self and my views, etc.
I have plenty of opertunities with intimacy with women but I do suffer a fear that prevents me from indulging. I don't trust my self not to get violent and brutal with a partner.
this is the evidence.
you don't become corrupt in a vacuum. many people had a hand in this.I'm morally corrupt in ways and could probably use guidance to work through these aspects of my self that are destructive to others.
empathy is not a cause or a means. it's an END. like many people, you've been deceived to believe it's a starting point.My family always noted how little empathy I have for others. Is this a behavior trait or social failing or something I'm stuck with? As in, can empathy be taught or gained by changes within my self?
empathy is a CONDITION that results from healthy social interaction. i.e., the ability to form functional relationships RESULTS in feeling empathy towards others. this really just means you don't know how to GOVERN your relationships; you have no idea how to exercise control to get what you need.
your needs drive you. if you can't get your needs met in a healthy way, you'll try to get them met in an unhealthy way because your needs never go away.
