Empathy: A Skill You Can Learn
Having empathy means you understand others’ emotions, share their feelings, and respond with compassion and care.
Being able to put ourselves in other people’s shoes is a core part of what makes us human. Empathy strengthens our relationships at home, in the workplace, and in our broader community and helps us connect with people.
The Power of Empathy
Given the pandemic toll on our collective wellness, it’s more important than ever to practice empathy, for others and ourselves. Practicing empathy helps us regulate our emotions, connect with others and feel less isolated. Empathy allows us to think of others and look for ways to help. Whether chatting with a neighbour, donating to a local charity or picking up groceries for a friend, an act of kindness can go a long way. When we do something good for others, we lift their spirits and our own.
