Are we suffering enough heartbreak?

"When was the last time I spent time with the poor?" I asked myself that question earlier today. So often, we can get trapped as social entrepreneurs/charity leaders in our own bubble without actually building relationships with the people we are trying to help and understanding what makes them tick.

I know this can cause pain but I wonder whether sometimes our hearts do need breaking again; to re-connect with what we feel passionate about and enabling us to show value, compassion and love to people when they need it most. Am I suffering enough heartbreak? No I'm probably not.
