I have been an advocate of empathy the moment my father once told me to look up the definition of the word for myself in the dictionary. Ever since, I have read about and researched the meaning of empathy, and set aside the encountered examples of its application and “practice.” I have become more compassionate in attempting to understand the people around me, and mostly those who are different than me in terms of ideology, ethnic background and age. This video explains the definition of empathy and the different ways to be empathetic, a key variable towards a better, more tolerant and less judgmental society. It really is the only way forward to avoid conflict and war. Must watch!
