Shattered, that could be a mom/son vs. mom/daughter dynamic. My mom treated my brother very differently from how she treated me. He was a prince who could do no wrong. I was the one who was always causing trouble.

FWIW, I took one of those ancestry DNA tests. Got it for my birthday. You get a raw file with your genetic info. I ran the Promethease report and it said I may be less inclined to being emphatic than the average person. So there is a genetic component too.

I do think people can learn to be more emphatic too. Life has sure as hell taught me a few lessons regarding empathy.

The Prince who gets slapped around (I've seen her physically slap him the upside of his head for acting stupid/immature). It's more he cannot do anything right, so his mother - or people around him HAVE to watch over him and help make sure he's doing things right or doesn't get into trouble.

I am sure that's where WW got her feelings that she can't do anything right. But over time her mother viewed her as the more responsible one. A lot of that happened (from my understanding) when she moved out and wouldn't answer her mother's phone calls every 5 minutes. Her mother had to deal with it.
