There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore
There is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, with music in it’s roar
I love not Man the less, but Nature more

– Lord Byron

Empathy over Conflict
It’s all a matter of perspective.

Social Perspective – there are only two ways of responding to any challenging social circumstance or situation,  positively or negatively, these are basic responses in individuals within the wider community, especially when feeling vulnerable or under threat.

Human nature being what it is, usually tends towards the negative, as in our current state of uncertainty and confusion – the ‘fight or flight’ response, trying to find someone or something to blame, fear and anger at the unknown – this is the worst and most disruptive condition, all are triggered by challenging events within our communities causing confusion and conflict.

We must be more aware of these states of mind and manage the issues at hand. Finding logical, philosophical or psychological perspective from similar and/or historical reference can help – in other words ‘look before we leap’ or acting with empathy rather than fear. Consider this before losing hope, or descending into denial or anger. It’s all a matter of perspective.
