Empathy is the ability to emotionally understand what’s the other people feel, see things from their point of view and imagine yourself in their place❤️.
Essentially, it is putting yourself in someone else’s position and feeling what they are feeling. Empathy means that when you see another person suffering such as after they’ve lost a loved one, you are able to instantly envision yourself going through that same experience and feel that they are going through.
I am an empathetic person and at the same time I am characterized by a marked sensitivity, when I was younger to be honest I didn’t liked to have or to feel these emotions because based on the society these emotions express weakness and I guess everyone wants to feel that they are strong and if have to face every-time that the empathy and sensitivity is weakness of course you will try to hide it from others because you feel prejudiced. 😞
As I started to grow up, I started to think more about myself especially about that famous question ‘WHO AM I’? and ‘WHERE DO I BELONG’? 😕
In fact I realized that being empathetic or sensitive is kind of strength that people who have it are lucky and are the great leaders to help others and to be available in their community or general in society. I realized that you have to accept yourself in the way that you are and of course always try to be the best version of yourself and what is the most important the society rules who we should be, or how we should live it’s not necessary to affect our choices. We are unique in the way that we are with empathy and sensitivity. 🥰
So today I am very happy that I am an empathetic person and sensitive because these feelings are special and just special people can experience these unique feelings😊/
