Brains are delicate things…
Because I have experienced poverty I don’t condescend to people, I don’t assume they have got miserable lives or that they are not interesting or haven’t got as full, if not a fuller, range of emotions and intelligence as everyone else. I don’t pity people. Compassion is different.
