Empathy. . .

In a world that feels deeply divided in many ways, those who are able to practice empathy have a unique ability to make a positive difference on large and small scales. Empathy gives us the power to compassionately understand the emotions and experiences of those different from us, to help others feel seen and known, and also to be mindful of how our actions and words affect others.

Practicing empathy isn’t easy — especially when the stakes are high — but it’s important. 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.’ Learning to stand in somebody else’s shoes, to see through their eyes, that’s how peace begins. And it’s up to you to make that  happen. Empathy is a quality of character that can change the world.

Peace and Love, Jim
