Empathy means – I keep my mouth shut when it counts.
Empathy means – I keep my mouth shut when it is not necessary to answer.
Empathy means – I consider before I say something whether it is better to keep my mouth shut!
Empathy also means – I listen and I fucking UNDERSTAND WHAT you want to tell me or I ask once for „What exactly do you mean?
Empathy means – I feel what the other person means – I feel it (unfortunately) energetically.
Empathy is 75% unknown on this planet.
Almost nobody thinks about WHAT was said before just answering haphazardly.
The biggest part of humanity is selfish and ignorant and only hears what he wants to hear and interprets what he thinks into it. Instead of asking or putting oneself in the place of the person opposite – perhaps even only for a short time – one should try to put oneself in his place.
There is a saying:
If you discover that you are riding a dead horse – get off.
That means for me – when you realize that your words have caused damage, it is too late. And you can talk as much as you want to make up for it.
The paper can be smoothed, the wrinkles remain.
Have a nice day.
