Empathy

on December 6, 2013

Empathy noun \ˈem-pə-thē\

: the feeling that you understand and share another person’s experiences and emotions : the ability to share someone else’s feelings

I have said things many times and immediately felt regret right after saying them or even while I was speaking. I would feel bad after because I know that instead of saying something negative that could come off the wrong way, I can say things that are uplifting and positive. A person’s capacity for empathy can be enlarged until they are 4-5 years old. It is enlarged by seeing other people being empathetic. In Charles Darwin’s A Tale of Two Cities, Lucie Manette is a witness who had seen Charles Darnay on a boat on her way back from Paris. As she is speaking, she has a golden radiance about her and she speaks with emotion so that the audience can feel the same things she is feeling. We can learn from this and try to be more empathetic towards everyone because you never know who will be watching you and maybe their capacity for empathy will grow by seeing you be empathetic.

I hope you all had a wonderful thanksgiving! Don’t forget to smile. 🙂
