“Empathy fuels connection” said by Dr. Brené Brown in her 2013 RSA talk, The Power of Vulnerability.

There is something magical with empathy.

When we empathize, we don’t only feel sorry for the person. Instead, we put ourselves in their position.

When we empathize, we take their perspectives and connect on a deeper emotional level.

When we empathize, we understand their behaviors — why they act that way or why they hate life.

When we empathize, we avoid judgment. Instead we try to understand their background, worldviews, and experiences.

Imagine every day, we practice empathy.

Can it change the world?
