WHAT DOES EMPATHY MEAN TO YOU?⁣

WHAT DOES EMPATHY MEAN TO YOU?⁣ “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.’”- Quote by Brene Brown⁣ A lovely description of empathy by Brene Brown and I just love her last part “You’re not alone”⁣ Researchers generally define empathy as the ability to sense other people’s emotions, coupled with the ability to imagine what someone else might be thinking or feeling.⁣

⁣Brene mentioned 2 very important points in her quote, which was “listening” and “without judgement”⁣ When listening to someone who needs to share, it is important to listen to hear and not to listen to reply. One must also be mindful not to judge anything that the person is saying.⁣ I would love to hear your thoughts on Empathy and what it means to you. As Brene says, “EMPATHY HAS NO SCRIPT” so there are many ways.⁣
