Empathy

The most beautiful gift we can give another person is understanding and empathy. Taking a moment to look someone in the eyes and to try to understand how they feel is powerful, for in that very act a person experiences a sense of being cared for, heard, and excepted. Few things are as selfless or expressive of true care as taking the time to imagine the feelings of another and to connect with them in that feeling. It cost no money to do yet it is a rare gift indeed…to feel loved, accepted, and heard is what we all strive for. What if we all took a moment to give others what we ourselves needed the most? How different would the world be?-
