Empathy Intervention – Nathan Ho

In high school I would always go out with friends and would rarely tell my mom. She would get mad and that would annoy me. I didn’t understand why she needed to know where I was 24/7. I thought she didn’t trust me to take care of myself. I didn’t stop to think about how she feels when she has no idea where I am. Looking back on it now, I realize that she was just worried about me. In the past she has had experiences where friends and family have died or been seriously injured while out. She probably just wants to know where I am in case of emergencies like these.
