It is much more beneficial to your soul to express empathy. You think you don't care, but you do. You think you don't have pain, but you do.
Suppressing it is not good for the mind, body or soul, and when you suppress it, you compound the emotional trauma of future events so that they
become much more painful for you and much more harmful to your well being. The pain you bury today will be resurrected someday. The trigger event
will awaken all of your past suppression's at one time and this will be devastating for you. You may already have numerous suppressed events waiting
to spring to life and overwhelm you when the trigger event hits you. By dealing with each event now, including all the ones from your past, you will
save yourself from serious harm and devastation later.
It sounds like you have lost all hope in humanity's ability to find a way to heal itself of the multiplicity of problems it has brought on
I know I have, so if that's the case you are not alone.
You have no need to show remorse in this particular scenario as you did nothing to cause it, nor could you or anyone else have prevented it.
Now I will go out on a limb and risk coming under ridicule.
I sense that you actually do have compassion and empathy in you. But I also sense that the difficulty you have expressing it goes back many years to a
time when you suppressed a lot of pain, because no one taught you how to deal with each of those instances when you were hurt, treated unfairly, lost
something, lost a friend, or a loved one. Now that you have grown, you can deal with these by freely entering your past (in your mind) to bring new
understanding and teaching to your child within. As long as we live, that child lives in us. Every day of our life is still inside us and the child is
as much alive as ever. There may be some walls to break down to reach your inner child, but Your child needs all that you can bring it, Love,
forgiveness, patience, kindness,compassion, etc. and your child needs to learn to forgive from you because as children we don't really know how to
forgive, and we bury our feelings. I hope you find the strength to forgive and the ability to teach and heal your inner child.
