What is Empathy?
The ability to understand and share the feelings of others, empathy allows us to see things from the other’s perspective rather than our own. It is a crucial skill that enables social and professional relationships, develop self-awareness, and contributes to an equitable and peaceful world. Empathy is needed to express compassion (the motivation to act upon other peoples’ suffering).
