Empathy – nurture or nature ?
A bit of both I guess .
All I know is that I can only spend lengths of time ( more than a cuppa or a stroll ) with people who have bags of it .
Up there with kindness, good listening /non-judgement a deep sense of humanity /humility , it is right up there .
Then last week I read about Empaths .Have you heard of them ?
Apparently an Empath is not merely someone who is capable of common empathy.
”It is someone who is capable of feeling someone else’s feelings in their own body, as if they were their own, in the sense of they can consciously enter into someone’s emotional field and figure out what is going on with them.”
I think I want one.
