Empathy is an emotional ability over which most humans have some degree of control. It allows us to feel emotions indirectly through others, and sometimes also physical sensations. Most of us show little empathy every day without being aware of it, as it is very essential for all aspects of our life. Empathy is what forces us to yawn when we see someone else doing it, laughing at something funny, or comforting someone who is suffering.
Without it, all of our interpersonal relationships would be cold, calculated, robotic or insensitive; Violence would be seen as a simple and easy way to resolve conflicts, and the feeling we call “love” would be reduced to a crushing. We need empathy for society to function peacefully, and during times when it seems to be lacking, we tend to idealize it.
What is the difference between having empathy and being empathic? Having empathy means that our heart is with another person in joy or pain. But for empaths, it goes much further. We feel the emotions, energy and physical symptoms of others in our bodies, without the usual defenses of most people.
Empathy is an invaluable resource for empaths and for all those who want to cultivate their empathy and develop coping skills in our environment world of encouragement, while fully embracing your gifts of intuition, compassion, creativity, and spiritual connection.
