Hmm. I think you have a good point there. I don't think Snape considered other people until Voldemort's return at the end of GoF, when he would be hit with the reality of what it used to be like when Voldemort had been around running the show. Not that I think Snape suddenly sprouted empathy for other people, but after a many year respite from Voldemort-inspired activities, the sudden juxtaposition of how he was expected to act during those years versus what Voldemort now expected might have been enough of a shock to actually nudge Snape towards human decency.
