Empathy is like an emotional echo that is sent out to the center of another person and returns with pieces of yourself.
Empathy is a learned behaviour…. I began finding pieces of myself in other people’s stories, I began to find the shared humanity in our experiences.
And that is when I developed real tolerance and compassion for others, as well as for myself.
Today, I understand that without tolerance for another, it’s hard to have empathy for myself.
Self-empathy is an important tool for your tool box ❤
