Empathy

Everyone always says what they would do in certain situations UNTIL they are in said situations and put to the test.
We also have this human flaw where we think we can control every situation/every result by taking *precautions*.
While human beings are intelligent beings, we are also very fickle and we simply CANNOT control every outcome in life. Death is inevitable. Pain is inevitable. Mistakes are inevitable. As much as we try to mitigate these circumstances, we cannot control or produce every outcome we want. That is life. That is reality.
Environment, access, resources, and luck determine our " choices" in life.
In conclusion, be more empathetic towards people who are in positions you have never been in or never been exposed to.
