18 Dec The Power of Empathy
This is easy to forget when someone gives us a hard time,offends us, screws up our order or any other of the myriad of ways our interactions with each other can go wrong. It seems though, if we can consciously stop, and remember that this person is also fighting a hard battle, we can tap into the power of empathy. Who’s not to say, that an act of kindness at that critical moment might be exactly what is needed to turn that person’s day around. If I’ve learned anything in life, it’s that in the end, the small things do count.
