Empathy

Listening is an act of love.

If you come across somebody difficult for you, remind yourself of the following:

  • Just like me, they need to support their family.
  • Just like me, they are thinking about their future.
  • Just like me, they must be facing a hardship unknown to others.

We hurt each other through ignorance more than out of spite. If we have hurt each other, in order to resolve, say 'I am very sorry and I have misunderstood you'.
