How Empathy Works

How Empathy Works

Our brains are working with shared neural circuits and shared neurons; some mirror neurons so that we actually have an internal experience of what happens to others. So when we hear the expression ‘I feel your pain,’ it’s not just a figure of speech. We are made for this and it happens not just with our loved ones.

Moreover, when we are deprived of empathy, it declines, but the good news is that it can also be learned. In order for us to bring out the best in others, we need to have their specialness reflected back in the eyes of others so they can see it themselves.

Eye contact. This is the first indication that we are noticed by another person. Every human has the longing to be seen, understood, and appreciated.

Tone of voice. When we are emotionally activated, our tone of voice and facial expressions change unconsciously.
