Of the people who have hurt me deeply in life, the tiny percentage that could be persuaded to give an account of it break into two groups: those that didn’t regard me as having feelings like they do, and those that lacked the empathy to be aware of other people in general having feelings as they do. I conclude that I am particularly disliked by people who see other people as objects.
