Have you ever thought about the fact that Hallmark offers a wide variety of sympathy cards but does not offer empathy cards? Sympathy is easy to express because it is a concern for others that is more from the head, while empathy is a heart-connection to what other people go through. When we are empathetic, we put ourselves emotionally in another’s shoes. 

In this episode, spiritual psychotherapist Steve Hasenberg, and I discuss:

  • The importance of empathy in creating a life of love, compassion, and purpose;
  • Jesus’ almost psychic ability to understand other people and their feelings; 
  • The fact that while even animals are born with a certain capacity for empathy, our ability to be empathetic must be nurtured; and
  • Why vulnerability is the doorway to finding compassion for ourselves and having empathy for others.
