The weekly tip to be empathic to others

Written by: ewn

What is empathy? It is the ability to understand and share the feelings of another person. The ability to put yourself in other’s shoes, and try to relate and understand where they are coming from, even if the situation is not familiar to you.

Recently I was sharing a personal problem with a good friend from London. Not only did he respond right away, which I didn’t expect because it was late at night his time, but he gave very thoughtful remarks. There were several things he did/said that made me feel better:

Weekly tip; Week 5

Put yourself in the person’s shoes. It’s easy for us to make comments and judge. We can also say “This is no big deal” or “I don’t see why you feel this way” or “You’re over-reacting.” However, put yourself in the person’s shoes and walk a mile. Maybe they are undergoing great pain and difficulty. Maybe they are experiencing deep problems from other areas of their life. Maybe there are little issues that led them to behave this way. Without knowing the full details of a person’s problem, how can we make a conclusion? Imagine you are the person. Imagine going through this problem right now, and try to understand things from their perspective. This will allow you to connect with their emotions and perspective better.

It’s a small price to care!

The news today is characterized by negativity around humanity and its existence, evil and terrorism. About poor environmental management and new viruses, body pressure on our youth and overuse in the world. One reads that on the doomsday clock that is being adjusted closer to destruction, despite all of this actually being new and that the world in many ways is better than ever.

One can help spread a good message, given that the vast majority of this world actually agree with the basic good values ​​of life. And we all have a responsibility for both our own lives and the society in which we live and, despite culture, skin discourse, religion, gender, layering, etc., can choose to be fellow human beings and show empathy for others.
