Why It’s IMPORTANT To Empathize!

Do you believe you’re always right? Do you make room to hear other’s perspectives? Are you open to people who disagree with you? ๐Ÿค”

๐ŸŒŸ No one sees the world 100% exactly the same. ๐ŸŒŸ

Think about 2 people who attend a music concert. They both experience the exact same concert, hear the exact same music, but yet they both came away with separate opinions. โ†”๏ธ

PERSON 1: “That concert was AMAZING!” ๐Ÿ˜„

PERSON 2: “That concert was CRAP!” ๐Ÿคฌ

How does that happen? Who was right?! ๐Ÿค”

A lot of opinions we hold are just that…opinions. We feel certain ways towards certain things. It’s not to say either person is right or wrong, but it’s a friendly reminder we each have different reasons for why we carry our opinions. ๐Ÿ™Œ

PERSON 1: “They’re my favorite band, and they performed just as AMAZING as I hoped!” ๐Ÿ˜„

PERSON 2: “I had a feeling this band was CRAP! My friend even told me not to come!” ๐Ÿคฌ

Do you see now some of the reasons why they had different opinions? ๐Ÿ‘

That’s why it’s important we develop the skills of empathy:

๐Ÿ“Œ So we can step into other people’s shoes.

๐Ÿ“Œ So we can be open to the possibility of a new perspective to embrace.

๐Ÿ“Œ So it can challenge how we perceive a certain situation.

๐Ÿ“Œ So we remind ourselves we all have reasons for why people do what they do.
