Empathy

December is Sunshine!


“When you start to develop your powers of empathy and imagination,
the whole world opens up to you.” ~ Susan Sarandon

  • Empathy is the ability to understand and share the feelings of another.
  • Empathy is about standing in someone else’s shoes, feeling with his or her heart, seeing with his or her eyes.
  • Empathy makes the world a better place.

The song of the month is “Walk a Mile in my Shoes” by Elvis Presley.

What is empathy?

How can you show empathy?

  • Thanks for telling me about that. I’m here if you want to talk about it.
  • I can understand how difficult that must be for you.
  • Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you.
  • Please continue to let me know how that’s going for you, I’m so glad you told me.
  • I am here as a friend. Is there anything I can do?
