Do not misspend your empathy.

Empathy is tremendously valuable, and should be treated like Krugerrands—pure gold coins. It should be given only where it will be honored, appropriately valued, and treasured. You wouldn’t take a pocketful of Krugerrands and throw them into a cesspool, would you?

To give empathy to a person who trounces it repeatedly by word and action is the same as the Krugerrand illustration.
