If we seek to understand the pain of others with true empathy, we grow as people ready to reform.
Without actively trying to understand the feelings and perspectives of someone else, we can’t comprehend deeply rooted problems in order to find viable solutions.
Here are some ways to cultivate empathy:
· Explore your heart (how are you feeling inside?)
· Question your biases
· Learn about what you don’t understand
· Be constructive not destructive (draw, paint, write, etc.)
When we lead with empathy, we connect with others on a human level. On a human level we share common concerns and polarization is forgotten.
