We live in a very demanding society and time, which constantly forces each of us to be perfect in everything and everywhere. Look around your circle of friends and ask yourself if you know a person who is going through a difficult period, who is insecure about themselves and their physical appearance, who is anxious, sometimes or often depressed, lost, lonely ..? Or maybe you personally identify with one of these things? That’s okay, we’re all going through difficult times.
The truth is, it doesn’t have to be that way, and something that will help you to better understand yourself and others is empathy.
Empathy is an ability, an evolving ability.
Empathy is the ability to imagine ourselves in another person’s position, to imagine, feel and experience what the other person is thinking and feeling.
