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."
"Empathy is feeling WITH people"
A connection a day keeps the doctor away!
