Can you tell me what Empathy is?

How often have we responded to others in distress and tried to make things better? Too many times right. Dr Brené Brown reminds us that we can only create a genuine empathic connection if we are brave enough to really get in touch with our own fragilities

The first step to being more supportive is understanding the differences between   empathy and sympathy.  Empathy is feeling “with ” people and sometimes creating a connection with people may be more powerful than of trying to find solutions. It is the ability to understand and share the feelings of another.

Take a look at this video clip  which explains the differences beautifully.

Learning to make the world a better place, one moment at a time 🙂
