Keep reading for FREE
After you've written your answers down, take some time to share your responses. See how close you were to getting it right.
What you need to create empathy is to listen - REALLY LISTEN - to your partner when they speak.
Listening doesn't mean waiting for your turn to talk. It means :
Even if you don't agree with their opinions or feel the same way, you can acknowledge that your partner has a right to their feelings.
You develop empathy within a relationship by regularly listening to each other's thoughts and feelings.
Seeing the world from your partner's point of view helps to build closeness as well as respect for your partner's individuality.
The secret sauce in a happy relationship isn't magic; it's empathy.
One sign is that you assume your partner has the same needs and boundaries as you do and that they experience life the same way as well.
On separate pieces of paper, write your answers to the following questions. Don't help each other or share your responses until the end.
The secret to a successful relationship, whether you're the couple that agrees 99 percent of the time or the couple with seemingly nothing in common, is EMPATHY. Now you have the skills to brew some up in your relationship.
A long term relationship has to be based on more than shared likes and mutual dislikes.
You and your partner may agree 99% of the time, but it's that 1% that can spell disaster if there's no empathy between you.
