Empathy for fear

I took my little dog Bogey to the vet yesterday for a routine procedure. He knows instinctively that he does not like the Vet … in fact he fears it … and his body trembles at the thought of it. It occurred to me how powerful it would be if we, as humans, outwardly demonstrated when we were feeling afraid. Most of the chaos and craziness in the world is based in fear. Wouldn’t we have a different reaction to people if we knew they were afraid rather than the behaviors and actions they chose to show the world?
