This is a great read about how empathy can affect a lot of lives, including our own. One of the things that is not in abundance in this world are people that can look at a given situation through another person’s point of view and take that into their lives to make their life better.
One of the things that I pride myself on and has been a big help in my personal recovery, is being as mindful, and empathetic to others’ situations. Because of this, I feel like that perhaps there I have changed a handful of lives, and ultimately, I changed my own life because of this. So, if you are suffering from any mental illness, I invite you to take a few minutes and read this.
There are also links to a test that I guess measure how empathetic you are as well as how sympathetic you are. I invite you to take these and see where you stand!
Expect a new entry with how I’ve been doing in the next week or so!
