Who is the real insensitive one?

In this 2010 Comic strip, “Dark Side of the Horse by Samson” and taken from the internet on September 29, 2010 Samson has his anti –hero Horace the Black horse, outside with ear muffs on complaining bitterly: “Monday Morning, 6am. My neighbour is already blowing his air horn. What an idiot”. And then we see in the next panel why Horace has really got his ear muffs on. For there, he is outside with His leaf blower on and going full bore.
So here Horace is complaining about the noise that his neighbour is making in response to Horace’s own insensitivity!
Sadly we so often see this in real life too: and many of the people complaining about the other person’s supposed insensitivity, is oblivious to their own. Even when it is their/our own insensitivity to others that has caused all the problems in the first place.
So today, and every day, before you accuse or blame anyone else for their insensitivity, please check out and correct your own insensitivity first! Please?
It may not always be true, but often it is our insensitivity that is the real problem and not theirs. Either way, please do be sure where the true blame lies before making any accusations.
