Empathy

Empathy is the ability to “put yourself into someone else’s shoes”, to really feel what they feel.

Is there a song that really connects with you? One song that really gets to you because you know what it feels like? Then you’ve tasted empathy.

The ability to feel what others feel is a powerful force. Empathy can lead to better relationships, better friendships and better communities. The power to change for the better comes from the heart, the mind gives direction but the power comes from the heart.
