Empathy has no script. There is no right way or wrong way to do it. It’s simply listening, holding space, withholding judgment, emotionally connecting, and communicating that incredibly healing message of ‘You’re not alone.’ – Brene Brown
Empathy is something I feel a constant need to work on.
Just when I think I’m getting it, I miss the mark terribly.
Maybe it’s just one of those things that we never completely master.
Either way – maybe you and I could practice today?
Try to imagine how others are feeling during your interactions.
Imagine their perspective and point of view.
Imagine how you might feel and think in their situation.
Ask some trusted people how you are doing.
Make an effort.
Make it a great day.
