Today’s Lesson: Empathy

I haven’t learned this quite yet, but I’ve discovered that I need to learn it.

I suppose that’s at least one sixteenth to one third of the battle, depending on who you are.

Learn the art of empathy.
Too often we judge people on too little information.
We must try to understand what they do instead, put ourselves in their shoes, start with the assumption that what others do has a good reason if we understand what they’re going through.
Life becomes much better if you learn this art.  Leo Babauta

    I hope you don’t mind I stole this?? You are so insightful and I love what you post – esp the pics. :)

    P.S. I totally looked Lauren up & am hiring her, because I looooove your blog design & the ‘uniqueness’ of it all. :)
