The Importance Of Empathy In Everyday Life

In trying times is more important than ever to consider the feelings of those around you. We are all in our own bubble, with our own unique perspective on the world, and it is crucial for our personal development to understand how other people experience the world.

Trying to understand other people’s experiences and perspectives is what we call empathy. There are, of course, the subconscious empathetic reflexes that we all experience without thinking (you might wince when you see someone get hurt, for example.) But to be truly empathetic, you need actively think about the concerns of others.

The video above by Devin Clark explores the importance of empathy and what you can do to improve your own. For more information check out the article below.
