The Power of Empathy

Vaidehi writing at Curating Empathy:

Great 2-minute video from RSA shorts on understanding exactly what empathy is (as opposed to sympathy), and why it’s so important.

The point I loved the most was that empathy is an incredibly vulnerable choice to make, because when we empathise, we connect with something within ourselves that knows that feeling.

The difference between empathy and sympathy was quite an eye-opener for me. You can probably tell one from the other, but this video explains it so very well.
