Empathy: seeing inside other people's hearts.

"This short video is at once quiet, profound, powerful, true, simple -- and so supremely human. It was produced by the Cleveland Clinic, as an example of their regard for empathy.

It's a profound reminder: we ALL have our story. Others have theirs. We NEVER know. And to treat others with the benefit of the doubt, with courtesy, with compassion, with respect."

Dimitris Tsantaris's curator insight, May 29, 2015 8:37 AM

"If you could stand in someone else's shoes,

Hear what they hear,
See what they see,
Feel what they feel,
Would you treat them differently?"


Empathy is remembering that everybody around us has a fight to give, a story to tell, a life to live; it is about remembering that precious uniqueness and that "shared humanity" of ours; and acting accordingly to meet it.

60 Seconds to a Stress-Less Life (and a More Compassionate World)

60 Seconds to a Stress-Less Life (and a More Compassionate World) | Life and Psychology | Scoop.it

"...The most popular practice I know to take back control of our lives and step into the choices and wonders that are all around us is the STOP practice. A few years ago when A Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Workbook came out I did a YouTube video of this practice and it has almost 70,000 views. A year ago when The Now Effect came out I put a more professional video out again and it already has almost 10,000 views. The reason this is so popular is because it benefits children, adolescents, adults, parents, politicians, educators, athletes, business people, and any human being. It’s necessary for healing stress, anxiety, depression, addiction, trauma and stress-related medical conditions.
 

The fact is, we all need to learn how to:

 

- Stop.

- Take a few deep breaths.

- Observe where we’re starting this moment from physically, emotionally and mentally.

- Proceed with what actually matters..."

How Do I Know When I Am Lying to Myself?

How Do I Know When I Am Lying to Myself? | Life and Psychology | Scoop.it

"...The most important way to determine whether you are lying or not is to observe yourself, without judgment or evaluation. Just notice and start asking questions that can reveal your internal motivations. As you do this, focus on three areas:
 

1. Notice Your Emotion. Generally, if we are emotionally reactive to something or someone, it is because we are being reminded of something painful, raw, or unresolved in our lives. In these areas, we are going to struggle to admit the truth. For example, if you struggle with trust issues in your romantic relationships, you may feel anxious, angry, or scared when falling in love with a new mate. As this occurs, you may find yourself reactive to your mate in ways that are not warranted based on who this person is! In fact, your reaction is fundamentally based on who you are and unresolved issues from your past that you are bringing into your new relationship.


Given this reality, when you have a strong emotional reaction to something or someone, pause. Ask yourself:  What is this emotion? What is my emotion in reaction to? Is my emotion really related to the present situation or is the present situation triggering something in me that is unresolved baggage from my past?..."

Julianna Bonola's curator insight, June 4, 2014 8:31 PM

Raw fact, when we see or feel something about someone else, there is always the strong possibility that what we see or feel is actually about us and not the other person.  What does this mean when we fall in love with someone?  Are we in love with that other or is it merely that we fall in love with a part of ourselves?  What do you think??  Have your say.....
