Everyone is categorized by personality, psychology, biological, and demographical assessments. Empathy is understanding these categories and relating to their progressing situation. Empathy is not feeling sorry for someone, but putting yourself in their shoes by recognizing the dynamics of their situation. Then we must hone in on how they feel, what they think, and how they choose to act. By applying the aforementioned, we are able to establish empathy not sympathy, and have a greater understanding and appreciation of each other’s circumstances.
“Peace cannot be kept by force, it is only achieved by understanding”
