Connect not response


 Today I saw this nice video from a special lady I already talked to you about before, Brene Brown on empathy versus sympathy. If only people had these qualities:

- perspective taking
- staying out of judgement
- recognising emotions
- communicating that
... we'd all be less stuck , less lonely...

"Empathy is a choice and it's a vulnerable choice because in order to connect with you, I have to connect with something in myself that knows that feeling."

  

"Rarely a response makes something better, what makes something better is connection". 
"Empathy is feeling WITH people"

A connection a day keeps the doctor away!
