Empathy is a way to connect with others that requires us to take the risk of being vulnerable. As Dr. Brené Brown says, “Empathy is feeling with people.” What a beautiful way to connect to others when they share something difficult. Check out this Dr. Brené Brown video that demonstrates it beautifully.
Empathy is a rare response these days because it challenges us to channel our own difficult feelings. I don’t know about you but I want to grow more in this area.
