What is empathy and why is it important to have it?

It’s the awareness of feelings of others by understanding and sharing the same emotions.

The reason it is so important is because it reflects self love and self awareness, plus the distinction between emotions of self and others.

Having empathy is most important when we are in emotional pain so we do not self judge, blame, shame, and criticize. The same applies for others, when we feel and recognize their pain.

It not only helps us understand how others feel, but it also prevents us from attaching to their pain and experience and taking their words and actions personally.

Empathy helps us rise above pain and act from a place of love and compassion for both self and others.
