On nuance, curiosity and empathy

There is necessarily nuance in most things in life.
 
But the longer I consider it, the more convinced I become that curiosity and empathy are better served when engaging with completeness. And humanity — especially in the context we find ourselves now — would also be better off for it.
 
This is not to say that there should not be nuance or boundaries in how or when we practice curiosity or empathy, lest they devolve into intrusive obsession or emotional depletion.
 
But we should never be scared to first approach any situation with curiosity and empathy, with a wholehearted attitude towards a deeper, more complete understanding, with the experience and wellbeing of the other as the guiding force.
