The emissary of the nine is a blog post by Michael S. Horowitz that makes a profound point about the importance of empathy and empathy training. The author writes, “Most people are not empathetic enough to understand why people behave the way they do, or how they can change their behavior.
In an interesting twist on the concept of empathy, Horowitz goes on to say that the only way to truly change one’s behavior is to do something that makes you feel good. So he suggests that empathy comes from within, and is learned through positive interactions with others. This may be the very meaning of empathy, but it seems strange to me.
Empathy is a pretty vague concept. A few people are able to be empathetic, but I don’t think these people are just empathetic. I think they are able to empathize, but I don’t think they are able to change.
I think empathy is more about being able to relate to someone else more than being able to understand them as a person. I think that’s why empathy is so hard to describe, because it’s so vague. Many people are able to be empathetic, but I dont see how anyone can change.
I believe that empathy is a complex thing. I think it starts out with simple feelings of love and concern (which the average person can easily feel). Empathy then becomes a way of being more objective and realistic, and becoming more objective and realistic. This is where the difference between empathy and understanding begins. Understanding is about understanding the other person as a person, not just as a mindless automaton that has no emotions or feelings of its own.
But empathy is also about being able to share the thoughts and emotions of someone else, and in a way that causes them to realize how their thoughts and emotions affect the world around them, and not just their own feelings. The main difference between empathy and understanding is that understanding is more likely to feel pain to the other person, whereas empathy is more likely to feel pleasure.
Empathy is a more nuanced concept than “understanding” as many of the people we’ve encountered in the world are all too afraid of feeling their feelings in a painful way. But it’s not always a bad thing to have a little empathy. Remember, even in a robotic, emotionless world, we are still, and will always be, connected to the people around us.
We are, after all, a pretty complex species of animal. All of us feel emotions and we care about each other, but we also live with a lot of shame when we don’t experience the emotions we’re supposed to. One of the biggest reasons we hide our feelings is that we fear what we might feel. This is also a very common reason that people hide their feelings, because they don’t want to feel what they are.
Even without a conscience, we all have feelings. We feel fear when we see somebody getting raped, when we see people getting murdered, when we see a girl being raped, when we see a girl being killed. As humans, we are naturally, and naturally, connected to the people around us. But even as we think we do, our feelings are still hidden.
It is because we don’t ever have to feel something. We can just make our feelings known. By being open, we know when we’re feeling something. If we are feeling anything, it’s probably because it’s not safe to be open with someone.
