Sympathy-Empathy: Not just for professionals

The two words look and sound so similar. Sympathy-empathy. Yet there is a world of difference between them and between how we express them to the people around us.

In this adorable 3-minute animated video, Dr. Brene Brown shows some of the differences. After you watch the video, you can read the summary below.


Showing empathy:

1. Feeling connection with people

2. Being able to see from the perspective of the other

3. Staying out of judgment

4. Acknowledgment of the difficulty of the other person without trying to fix it.

5. Recognizing emotion in other people and then communicating that.

This topic deserves a much longer explanation but i wanted to get the video out to you.

Let me know below if you have any comments.

Have a great day!
