It's A Given

Ever since I was a child I had empathy for others.
When I see someone that is narcissistic, judgmental or down right cruel my blood boils.  I grew up with a father that is all of the above.
I am a sensitive person and can feel others emotions being an empathic.  
I will come to the defense of anyone in need.  Just try me.

I feel the same way, except for my father was a giving person that taught me to have empathy for others.The thing is, those who are narcissistic, judgmental, and cruel often are the ones with the lowest self esteem. In order to feel better they have the need to push others down. To me this sort of behavior shows a severe lack of confidence.

I agree, he has a lack of confidence mixed in with low self worth. It's actually sad when I think about how he is, it still gets to me tho.
Thanks for your comment.
