What is Empathy? Empathy is the ability to be aware of, understand, and be sensitive to another person’s feelings. Instead of focusing on how these feelings impact ourselves, empathy motivates us to focus on others and respond with care and compassion. Here are some ways you can practice empathy: 1. Take a different perspective. When you take a different perspective, you put aside your own feelings and reactions to see the situation through another’s eyes. 2. Put aside the judgment. Take a pause, and rather than express conclusions about a situation based on what you see, step back and consider other things you may still need to know or understand. 3. Communicate that you understand. Instead of giving advice, respond with reflective phrases like, “It sounds like you...” or “I hear that you...” to express that you understand and care. I want you to think about a time someone showed you empathy. How did it make you feel? What did you to thank them for it?
