On Empathy….

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 ❤
