Insensitive

I’m finding myself lacking sensitivity and compassion recently. I find myself judging people who are suffering because, for some reason, I’ve decided that the causes for their suffering are foolish. What’s more, the methods that they use to overcome their pain (alcohol, drugs, partying) seem to justify my hardness of heart.

I’m disturbed by the arising of this insensitivity and cruelty but I’m not quite sure what to do. I will strive to counter these thoughts and feelings with karuna and hope to see more clearly soon. May all beings be free of suffering. May wisdom arise. May grief and heartbreak come to an end.
